Now on sale throughout AU/NZ by Outdoor Gear Australia.
Having the courage to risk fatal exposure and the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely magnificent physical feats of human endurance, they are also huge mental conquests. Presented by The North Face from the creators of the award winning film ‘All.I.Can’, Sherpas Cinema is proud to present their newest feature film - 'Into The Mind'.
With absolutely stunning cinematography and ground-breaking storytelling techniques, the Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and then immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain.
Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his own dream-scape, each one harbouring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices. As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalayas and beyond, Into the Mind paints an incredibly deep and almost philosophical portrait of the human being.
Q1: Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?
Q2: How do we balance the risk versus the reward?
INTO THE MIND – AWARDS & SCREENINGS CONTINUE AROUND THE WORLD
The film festival line has been ringing off the hook with good news for Into the Mind this last week. Shortly after receiving a new set of laurels for Best Photography at the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival (Spain) they received a letter notifying us that the International Alliance for Mountain Film would be awarding Sherpas Cinema with the prestigious award of the 2014 Grand Prize of the International Alliance of Mountain Film.
The International Alliance for Mountain Films was instituted to promote, enhance and conserve mountain cinematography and has twenty one members from around the world - twenty festivals of mountain film and one museum, which represent sixteen countries of Europe, Asia, and North and South America.
It is a huge honour to receive this award and we are thrilled to receive international recognition from the alliance, especially as Into the Mind is the first ski film that has ever received the Grand Prize. The letter of notification for the award written by the International Alliance for Mountain Film coordinator Aldo Audisio reads:
“Eric Crosland and Dave Mossop have created a new style in filming snow sports. With top-quality, innovative photography and editing, the team of Sherpas Cinema has taken the necessary risks for positively changing this genre of mountain film. It has successfully sought an innovative take on narrative formulas, and its generally award- winning films of extreme snow sports have created new audiences, transmitting mountain culture to them at the same time.”
Sherpas Director Eric Crosland writes in response to the letter:
“When I read Aldo’s letter I was honoured by his words, for him to come out and say the things he did about the Sherpas was incredible for us. Upon researching the past winners, I realized this was truly an International Award that had never acknowledged ski films before.”
The Sherpas will proudly accept the award after the screening of Into the Mind at the Trento Film Festival in Italy (in May 2014). The Trento Film Festival is a historic mountain film festival that is currently in its sixty second year.
We are excited to be a part of the line-up of extraordinary mountain films that will be featured.
“To have the worldwide mountain film community recognize our work is absolutely incredible. But, to read their insightful perception of our artistic personality, their understanding and appreciation of the risky choices we’ve made along the way – this is what makes this award extremely moving for us. A huge thank-you to all the members of the International Alliance.” says Director Dave Mossop in response to the IAMF award.

Amazing Photographic Cinema
Posted by Elizabeth B. (Vic) on 14th Oct 2017
This is an amazing journey of visual gigantic proportions. The cinematography is exceptional and worth watching for this alone. The stories are engaging and interesting. We watch this each time we want to 'escape' from the reality of our lives and adVENTURE out into our minds up on a mountain somewhere else in the world. Love it!
