A Record-Breaking Night To Remember
116 people made up the 20 teams that entered this year’s Morzine Film Awards. With more films than we’d ever had before, this was going to be a night for the record books.
Everything Had To Be Bigger
Last year left us in awe of what Morzine was capable of. We knew that 2019 had to be twice as big, twice as extravagant and twice as loose, so we set out to one-up ourselves in every aspect of the event. We started naturally enough at the beginning - last year opened with Nick runing down the red carpet to AC/DC’s Back In Black. This year, to celebrate the sponsors who make the festival possible and the charities we were raising money for, we created an intro video with Nick. In the video Nick travelled through Morzine in hilarious situations, including playing in goal for the Morzine Hockey Team, while telling us everything we needed to know about MFA 2019. Our intrepid partners at Cafe Chaud Morzine took the bar service to the next level this year as well, setting up two bars to maximise the beer-to-mouth speed for the 1200 people in the crowd. Once again they raised a staggering amount for this years charities, totalling €19,000 in just 6 hours. You guys rock! Cuisine 22 burst onto the Morzine scene this year, shaking up tastebuds on the Rue Du Bourg, so it was only fitting that we had them doing what they do best at MFA. They blew us away with their vegan BBQ sweet potato and pulled pork buns!
By far one of the coolest features of this year’s Film Awards was the Look Good, Do Good charity line by SLUSH. Charlie And Lois designed and hand-dyed these trendy long-sleeve tees right here in Morzine. The sales of the tees reached €1,100 and every penny went to the this year’s charities.
