FILM LIST

GOOD MORNING

Film Synopsis: Every day, skier Richard Permin falls into his mundane morning routine. Right after getting out of bed, he clicks on his skis and rides down the snow covered rooftops of Avoriaz.

LIFE OF PIE

Film Synopsis: When Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller moved to the tiny, conservative high desert town of Fruita, Colorado almost twenty years ago, it was not on the map as far as mountain biking was concerned and they were on the fringe and a bit ostracized. Now they are at the very heart and soul of the community.

THE MOTIVATOR

Film Synopsis: Filmmaker Aaron Hitchins turns his camera on the person who has motivated him to lead a life connected to the outdoors: his mother, Maureen.

THE FLIP

Film Synopsis: French Skydiver Remi Angeli must face his fears in order to explore new expressions of movement while BASE jumping in Mexico. On the other side of his fear he discovers life in its purest form.

INTO THE CANYON (TOUR EDIT)

Film Synopsis: Pete McBride and Kevin Fedarko tell a story of extreme physical hardship where the bonds of friendship are stretched and the timeless beauty of the Grand Canyon becomes meditation and ultimately a cautionary tale for our complex relationship with the natural world.

REEL ROCK 13: UP TO SPEED

Film Synopsis: When climbing was announced as part of the 2020 Olympics, it was a monumental occasion for the sport. But many climbers were shocked to learn that one of three combined events required to compete for a medal is speed climbing.

THE LADAKH PROJECT

Film Synopsis: Seven days, three rivers, one woman. This is the story of Nouria Newman's solo kayak adventure in the Indian Himalaya.

ELECTRIC GREG

Film Synopsis: Having seen the effects of climate change first-hand, Greg Hill sets out to climb 100 peaks without burning any fossil fuels. But the question is: will it make a difference?

SURFER DAN

Film Synopsis: In a time when it can feel like you need to fly to the opposite side of the globe to find adventure and challenge, Surfer Dan proves that with dedication, grit and a little creativity you might already have all you need outside you own backdoor.
