In their first post-graduate production, the Dean’s List annual project brings you REAL WORLD, a locally-produced ski film featuring athletes from all over the country. Like last year’s sold-out original Dean’s List ski film, director Cedar Palmer and Finn Bailis present a classic ski film funded by the people and passion of skiing. Ticket holders can expect an hour’s worth of epic ski shots, giveaways and story-telling.

REAL WORLD stars Telluride locals Toe Carmola, Ryan Buttars, Sam Herman, Brian Hehir, Lucas Foster, London Albrecht, Hagen Kearney, Harry Kearney, Logan Petrie, Morgan Pihl, Benji Biber, Neilly Busch, Ridgewalker Busch, Greg Hope, Duncan Adams, Conor Pelton, Victor Major and Baker Boyd, and many other fantastic skiers from all over the country. Filmed on location in the San Juan Mountains, Elk Mountains and front range in Colorado, the Wasatch Mountains in Utah and Smokey Mountains of Idaho.

Palmer and Bailis both grew up in Telluride skiing competitively before attending college together. Inspired by watching annual ski movies at the Sheridan Opera House, Palmer filmed friends skiing and mountain biking from a young age; he went on to study film at CU Boulder. Bailis studied aerospace engineering at CU, and moved to Spain post-graduation, before returning to his hometown. The Dean’s List is affectionately named after their close-knit crew of friends (many of whom were academically far from the Dean’s List) who share their passion for skiing and dream to make ski films.

Sheridan Arts Foundation, nore:

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education.

The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the CCAASE, Colorado Creative Industries and an American Rescue Plan Act grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support general operating expenses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
