PART I

Where the Wild Things Play
There’s an ongoing discussion of why there aren’t more females in the adventure industry; whether it’s in big mountain skiing, climbing, or whitewater kayaking. Well, it’s about time we found out Where the Wild Things Play!

Kilian  
Kilian Jornet is considered the greatest mountain runner ever. But he doesn’t consider himself a runner. Join Kilian in his new backyard in Norway as he attempts to ski and run the Seven Summits of Romsdalen in a single day, a 77 kilometre route with 9,000 metres of elevation gain.

Edges
At the ripe old age of 90, Yvonne Dowlen has been ice skating for as long as she can remember. Edges is a celebration of a life well lived.     

DugOut (Tour Edit)
Ben and James decide to travel to the Ecuadorian Amazon, live with an indigenous community, learn from them how to build a canoe from scratch, then take that canoe on a journey… What could go wrong?

PART II

Ice Call – Backyards Project – Sam Favret
Try to keep up to freerider Sam Favret as he gives us a new perspective of the mythical Mer de Glace, at the heart of Mont-Blanc.

Dreamwalkers – The Faroes Project (Tour Edit)
Four friends set out on an adventure to be the first to highline in one of the most unlikely of places: the Faroe Islands.

The Last Honey Hunter  
Maule Dhan Rai is the last man in the remote Nepal village of Saadi who’s been visited in a dream by a wrathful forest spirit called Rongkemi. If no one else in the village has the dream, a generations-old tradition may die.

Intersection: Micayla Gatto  
Mountain biker Micayla Gatto takes the viewer into her world as a painter and as an athlete, riding through beautifully created masterpieces where colours come to life and reality blends with art.

Thurs. March 15

PART I

Imagination: Tom Wallisch  
Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents’ car, wishing you were somewhere else? So you imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. Well, what if your imagination came to life?

Pedal
Forty-three countries down, Hera van Willick rides her bicycle across continents, fully self-supported, sharing her journey and what she has learned along the way.

Into Twin Galaxies - A Greenland Epic
3 National Geographic “Adventurers of the Year” embark on an insane kayaking mission in Greenland. With kite skis, they tow their white water kayaks over 1000 km of the Greenland Ice Cap to reach the most northern river ever paddled.

PART II

Surf the Line  
For The Flying Frenchies, thinking out of the box isn’t a choice – it’s a way of life.

My Irnik  
Originally from Montreal, Conor falls in love with the northern way of life, and a woman, in the Canadian Arctic. Now the young father helps to pass on the native traditions and ancestral culture to his son, as he learns them himself.         

Johanna  
For freediver Johanna Nordblad, diving under the ice provides a surreal, calming environment that helps heal her injuries.

Loved By All: The Story of Apa Sherpa
Apa Sherpa has climbed Mount Everest 21 times, but he wouldn’t wish this upon anybody. Having grown up in the remote Khumbu region of Nepal, Apa was forced to leave school and work as a porter at the age of 12. For Nepal’s rural people, the income earned as a high altitude porter conflicts with the dreams made possible only through education and knowledge.

Stumped        
Maureen Beck has never let the fact that she is missing her lower left arm hold her back from climbing. She doesn’t want to be considered a good one-armed climber, or a good female climber…she just wants to be a plain good climber.
