Movie Premier, "Nowhere" by Absinthe Films

Absinthe's latest showpiece movie "nowhere" (Now Here) has a lot to live up to. 10 years in the game and as one of the leading producers of current snowboard flicks - people expect to be impressed by Absinthe. The bottom line is, well, you will be. With an all cast list of worldly talent show casing their skills in both big mountain and urban terrain - the film is a real winner. Exceptional editing blended with an impressive array of diverse and original tunes - the film ticks all the boxes.

The list of talent says it all: Dan Brisse, Jake Blauvelt, Gigi Rüf, Lucas Debari, Fredi Kalbermatten, Sylvain Bourbousson, Romain deMarchi, DCP, JP Solberg, Annie Boulanger, Marie-France Roy, Bjorn Leines, Taka Nakai, Tadashi Fuse, Jules Reymond, Cale Zima, Blair Habenicht, Terje Haakonsen, Bode Merrill, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Nicolas Müller.

They all deserve a mention. No one should be left out.

Appealing to both the younger jibber fraternity as well as the more old school rider out there, Nowhere focuses on everything that's current in Snowboarding and still sets the bar higher. The free riding, be it in BC, Switzerland or Alaska is jaw dropping, original and above all, inspiring. Fresh approaches to varied terrain will put a smile on anyone's faces. The urban slots are no different. New features, new lines and new boundaries have been reached. Higher, bigger, further than before.

Celebrate Absinthe's 10-year milestone and you'll be as pumped as we are for the winter ahead.
