Apex Predators

WORLD PREMIERE

A tranquil day of ice fishing goes suddenly awry when natural selection rears its ferocious head. Something lurks in the depths of the great lonesome mountains of the North– a land where if you are not the predator, you WILL be the prey. But four skiers will not go down without a fight.

Director: Ben Sturgulewski

Sturgefilm founder Ben ‘Sturge’ Sturgulewski grew up on a rugged and remote island in Alaska’s Aleutian Chain, inspiring a life dedicated to the exploration of the world’s wild side, and the people who call it home.Infused in all aspects of production as a director, cinematographer, editor, and writer, he’s worked in definitively nasty and awe-inspiring conditions around the world—all while bringing a unique and critical cinematic perspective to action sports, documentary, narrative, and commercial pursuits.

Ben’s integral work with companies like Sweetgrass Productions, Matchstick Productions, and DPS Cinematic has created many acclaimed films that have appeared in festivals from Banff to Krakow to New Zealand. His projects have won dozens of awards for cinematography, editing, and storytelling, as well as numerous grand prizes, including Powder Magazine’s coveted Movie of the Year Award. In online releases, Ben has produced half a dozen Vimeo Staff Picks and viral videos with over five million views. His work with various agencies, collectives, and production houses continues to take him around the world.

Ben is based in Alaska.
