Ice work as France skis to victory at Les Arcs
France shot to victory at the annual European Cinema Ski Cup competition in Les Arcs, which also saw one high profile disqualification.
Around 50 film-makers and distributors lined up to brave testing conditions at the Alpine resort, taking part in a timed slalom event.
Rémi Burah, deputy managing director of Arte Cinema, finished first in a speedy 30.98secs.
Strictly speaking, festival co-founder Pierre-Emmanuel Fleurantin was quickest, coming in at 30.67secs, but was just skiing for fun… and is a bit of an expert, having grown up on skis in Les Arcs.
The only disqualification -missing one slalom pole - was for the festival’s artistic director, Frédéric Boyer, who managed a respectable 35.04secs.
