ROGUE ELEMENTS: CORBET’S COULOIR

2017, USA, 4 minutes / Filmmaker: Teton Gravity Research, Todd Jones

Anyone who has ever skied or snowboarded Jackson Hole knows just how nerve-racking it can be to send it into the infamous Corbet's Couloir, even in the best of conditions. Doing it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, and that's exactly what we did.

 

LAND OF THE WIND

2017, United Kingdom, 18 minutes / Filmmaker: Laura Belinky

In Patagonia, further South than most people ever dare to venture, there's a land of infinite vastness and beauty. Fine-art photographer Eliseo Miciu explores this mythical place, and also learns a bit more about himself.

 

THE MIRNAVATOR

2017, USA, 11 minutes / Filmmaker: Sarah Menzies

Ultra-runners overcome obstacles with every stride. Force of Nature Mirna Valerio never thought she would have to overcome the negative voices that believe she doesn't belong in the sport.

 

ICE & PALMS

2018, Germany, 32 minutes / Filmmaker: Jochen Mesle, Max Kroneck

Bikepacking, summiting mountains and skiing some iconic lines along the way, friends Max and Jochen have one dream – 5 weeks, 1,800 km and 35,000 vertical meters self-propelled across the Alps.

THE MOMENT (EDIT)

2018, Canada, 15 minutes / Filmmaker: Darcy Tennessey Turenne

In the backwoods of British Columbia, three small but dedicated crews of adventure seekers were quietly changing the course of a sport and carving their paths in history. The Moment captures the birth and success of the original free ride mountain bike movement.

LIV ALONG THE WAY

2018, Canada, 22 minutes / Filmmaker: Mike Douglas and Anthony Bonello

Ever since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 of the 4000-meter peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.

 

SURFACE

2018, USA, 7 minutes / Filmmaker: John Rodosky

In a photographic niche defined by familiar angles, Ben Thouard is driven by his desire to create something original in surf photography.

 

THE FRENCHY

2018, USA, 14 minutes / Filmmaker: Michelle Smith

Jacques is an 82-year-old, badass athlete, but the real story is how he inspires us with his contagious love of life, epic tales of survival and his ability to counter aging through laughter
