Through The Lens
On April 3rd a jam packed World Bar played host to Queenstown's First Annual Mountain Bike Film Festival.
Organized by DTR New Zealand filmmakers were asked to produce a video edit up to 7 minutes in length, shot exclusively in the Southern Lakes area of New Zealand.
The final edits making the cut were funny, epic, and even super weird, featuring some well known local shredders as well as first time filmers just having a laugh.
Taking home the big win was JonTV with his beautifully shot edit featuring Kelly McGarry packed with banger shots all the way through leaving Ginger Si and Pangs to take the Runner Up spot with their hilarious effort Huck Wizard.
The evening was a great success, with what seemed like every biker in Queenstown at the the screening. The event raised a bunch of money for the mountain bike club to go towards future developments. Plans are already in place for next years fest to make it even bigger and better.
Congratulations to all those who made it through the toil to get their edits completed on time. While the show may only last a couple of minutes, many don't realise the hours that go into making it a reality. Check out JonTV's winning submission below along with all the other great edits that played on the night.
