2021 Western Hunter Film Festival

Postby WesternHunterBen » 04 07, 2021 •  [Post 1]

Hello Wapiti Talkers!

Ben Britton from Western Hunter Magazine here. We just launched our inaugural Film Festival and wanted to cordially invite you all. Some of you are already subscribers to our magazine, which we greatly appreciate.

A bit about the event in addition to the video above: Now through October we're accepting film submissions from hunts that took or will take place during the 2019, 2020, and 2021 seasons. If you already have a qualifying film complete, we urge you to submit it. If not, we hope that you use our event as a great reason to create a hunt film this year. There is over $25,000 worth of gear winnings at stake distributed among the 4 competitive categories. For anyone who doesn't submit a film, we hope that you watch and participate in the online voting round later on.

Submitting a film is easy: simply upload to YouTube or Vimeo, and provide us with the link when filling out the Submit a Film form on our site. Films will be added to our Film Fest site for visitors to watch and enjoy as they are submitted. The sooner you enter, the more views your film will receive through our platform. After the October 31st submission deadline, our staff of industry judges will vote internally to determine the finalist films in each category, which will then move on to an intense public voting period to crown the winners.

You can learn more by visiting the link below. You'll see a place to submit your email if you want to register as a voter, and we'll be doing gear drawings for those who sign up throughout the event (first up is a Marsupial bino harness).

Thanks for reading, and please feel free to ask questions, share your entry, etc. in this thread which will stay here for the duration of the Film Fest.

Thanks for sharing this with us Ben. I can't wait till we start to see the VIDs pop up; how sweet is this event! I know we have a good handful of WT members that have shared some of their hunting VIDs here and am sure that there are more that were just waiting for an opportunity like the Western Hunter Magazine inaugural Film Festival ;). "You'll see a place to submit your email if you want to register as a voter, and we'll be doing gear drawings for those who sign up throughout the event (first up is a Marsupial bino harness)." - Umm, ya! Get signed up as a voter folks and have a chance at winning some cool prizes throughout the event timeline!

Hit these two links ladies and gentlemen and see what the event is all about.

Oh, and welcome to the forum Ben. Western Hunter has been a sponsor here for years but it's nice to have one of the staff/crew on board ;)

I got the new GoPro Hero 9 this season. It shoots in 5k, does timelapse, and is so small that it doesn't even take up much room in your pocket. Highly recommended.

If you are interested, we will have a full review of the new GoPro in the next issue of the magazine which the deadline to subscribe is 4/15, so hurry up and get in.
