Thank you all for your continued support of the Niseko Shootout!
We would like to share an announcement about our end of season finale event, the Niseko Shootout Short Film Festival.
Due to the circumstances posed by the recent Corona Virus outbreak, we will unfortunately not be holding our event at Hanazono Edge as previously planned. However, our communities loss is the world’s gain as we plan to broadcast all films and live judging results during a Facebook Watch Party!
Now everyone far and wide can join in as host Neil Hartmann guides us through viewing of this year’s Short Film entries - all 22 of them! The winners will be announced along with this year’s hashtag #nisekoshootout winners.
We are thrilled that all filmmakers and hashtag entrants that would otherwise be unable to attend our local event, will now be able to take part in the event they so very much made! Undoubtedly, the films and photos will do their part in showcasing winter in Niseko. Now let’s do our part in showcasing Niseko’s resiliency by helping us spread the word about our online event.
