FROM KURILS WITH LOVE
Filmmaker: Taylor Rees
A scrappy Russian marine biologist called Vladimir stows away on a boat filled with adventure junkies (and a world-renowned cybersecurity expert) to reach one of the last paradises on Earth – the volcanic Kuril Islands, between Russia and Japan. From this dramatically beautiful and inaccessible chain of islands, From Kurils With Love introduces us to a true warrior for the planet on an intimate journey of visual bliss… and sea lion chaos.
Filmmakers: Akemi Walsh And Anna Thorsen
2,000km, 3 months, 2 kayaks – and zero single-use plastic. With giant icebergs, abundant wildlife and serious arm-power, university friends Lucy and Mathilde tackle an ambitious kayaking trip along the Inside Passage, down the coast of Alaska and Canada. With all of their 500 meals stored in paper, Changing Tides joins the intrepid duo on a journey of adventure, challenge, friendship and a deep love of the world’s oceans.
Filmmaker: Aether Films
Skimboarding is a sport that starts and ends on the beach, with skim-boarders running to meet an incoming wave and riding it back to shore – performing impressive tricks along the way! With an epic soundtrack plus spectacular underwater and ariel shots, Matador stars professional skim-boarder Austin Keen in action among the crystalline blue waters and white sand beaches of Mexico. Wow factor guaranteed.
VOICE ABOVE WATER
Filmmaker: Dana Frankoff
Wayan is a 90-year-old Balinese fisherman who can no longer fish because of the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean. In a change of pace, Wayan instead uses his fishing boat and net to pull rubbish from the water, in the hope of one day being able to fish again. Voice Above Water is a glimpse into how one person is using his resources to make a difference, and a reminder that we can all accomplish something much greater than ourselves.
Filmmaker: Abraham Joffe
London-based monochrone photographer David Yarrow steps ashore in South Georgia to capture the mind-blowing wildlife scenes of this remote and inhospitable island, only reachable by an 80-hour boat journey. But with hundreds of thousands of penguins and seals, surrounded by a cathedral of mountain peaks and hanging glaciers, this spectacle of nature is a sensory overload and it’s hard to know where to start…
THE SEA TO ME | KATE HAMSIKOVA
Kate Hamsikova is a freediver and swimming instructor whose connection with the sea grew thanks to her friendship with a solitary wild dolphin called Dusty. Over the last 15 years Kate has become an experienced freediver, diving in many of the world’s great oceans and sharing her passion for the sea with others – but here she tells her story from closer to home, on her beloved west coast of Ireland.
RACE TO ALASKA
Filmmaker: Zach Carver
The Race to Alaska is a boating race that pushes contestants to the edge of endurance, tackling 750 miles of dangerous waters, from Washington to Alaska, with no motors and no outside support. Those who take on the challenge are varied in their experience and motivations, but all share the same determination. Jumping to get perspectives from boat to boat, Race to Alaska is bracing, immersive, wonderfully congenial and a tribute to the spirit of adventure.
