The Newport Beach Film Fest presents two Action Sports Shorts: Cold Water Therapy and An Ode to Love & Ski Jumping
Cold Water Therapy: The synopsis: Three childhood friends take on the adventure of a lifetime in the Alaskan Winter searching for uncrowded waves and a sense of relief from their busy lives.
An Ode to Love & Ski Jumping – A 7 min film by Maryanne Galvin Tag line: An homage to those who emboldened him with courage and grit, an international ski jump judge reflects on 50 years in competitive sports In 1970 if you lived in New England, you thought about the Boston Bruins and Orr. All the time. Unless you were Mark Levasseur, a 10-year-old gifted athlete from Worcester, MA. Mark was laser-focused on emulating his father’s esteemed ski jumping record and becoming the next Bobby Orr.
LIFT: An Ode to Love recounts Levasseur’s fifty-year journey in competitive sports. The short film is realized via archival footage, action-packed hockey and ski jumping, and a compelling interview. Levasseur pays tribute to the man and the sports community he credits with emboldening him with courage, compassion, and grit.
