The full length documentary McCONKEY is slated to have its world premiere this April at the world-renowned Tribeca Film Festival. It is showing as one of their “Spotlight” films, which are described as films that blur the lines between independent and mainstream. There are 21 narratives and 12 documentaries from across the globe showing in this particular section of the festival. Matchstick Productions in conjunction with Red Bull Media House have put together the long-awaited story of “the most influential skier ever.” –

“McConkey,” a 90-minute documentary to be released in 2013, is a heartfelt examination of the legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. Shane McConkey is revered as the pioneer of freeskiing and ski base jumping, and through his talent and unique outlook on life, he inspired countless lives. “McConkey” celebrates the life of one of the world’s ultimate innovators.

    When now the boy, whose childish thoughts aspire
    To loftier aims, and make him ramble high’r,
    Grown wild, and wanton, more embolden’d flies
    Far from his guide, and soars among the skies.
