Holmlands are excited to announce the screening of not one, but two films by Matchstick Productions, as part of our annual UK film tour this autumn.
"HOJI" is a bio pic on long time MSP Films athlete, Eric Hjorleifson, who lets his skiing speak for itself. He doesn’t stand on the bar and shout out his accolades. He skis for brands that give him 100% creative control over the equipment that he designs and uses. He chases storms. He ditches his cell phone for weeks at a time. His exploits are rarely flaunted on social media. In spite of all of this – or maybe because of it – he is a hero to legions of skiers across the globe. This is who Eric is – this is “HOJI.” Directed by Scott Gaffney and featuring Eric Hjorleifson, Chris Rubens, James Heim and more.
"ALL IN" is a feature film that delivers a first of its kind experience. This concept is spearheaded by a talented group of hard-charging women who wanted to disrupt the male-dominated ski film formula. Skiing isn’t exclusionary. True fun in the mountains can be shared by everyone. This isn’t your typical “Women can shred too” film, this is a kick-ass ski film that just happens to feature as many women as men.
Directed by Scott Gaffney, this film will embody the spirit of past Matchstick films with high-action ski segments, stunning imagery and engaging humor. Shot in exotic locations over the course of 2018, ALL IN will excite skiers across the globe.
Together with our film tour partners Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, Ski Club of Great Britain, Disability Snowsport UK and Protect Our Winters UK, we will be visiting London, Edinburgh and Manchester in October and November, with a full list of tour dates and ticket links at www.skimovielondon.com
