WHFF Virtual: The Race to Alaska

The Woods Hole Film Festival season series WHFF Virtual presents the documentary THE RACE TO ALASKA, including a live online Q&A with the the film’s director Zach Carver on Saturday, December 12 at 7pm EST. Presented in partnership with the Woods Hole Yacht Club.

The Race to Alaska is an adrenaline-fueled, 750-mile boat race through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the Inside Passage to Alaska.

Described as “the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning or being eaten by a grizzly bear,” it’s amazing anyone enters at all. This epic endurance race attracts the intrepid and unhinged who find their edge along a coastline that is as punishing as it is beautiful.

For the best community viewing experience, we recommend starting the film at 5:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, December 12 and then joining WHFF Executive Director Judy Laster for the Q&A on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. EST.

The film will be available to watch between Thursday, December 10 at 8am and Sunday, December 13 at midnight EST. If you purchase a ticket in advance you will receive an activation link to view the film via e-mail on Thursday morning, December 10. If you purchase a ticket on or after December 13 you will receive a watch link immediately after your order confirmation. A free ticket to the virtual Q&A will be made available when you purchase your ticket. A separate access link for the Q&A will be e-mailed to you approximately one hour before the start of the event. Once you start playing the film you will have 48 hours to finish watching, or until midnight on Sunday, December 13, whichever comes first.
