Tuesday 26 March (Red Programme)
SKIER VS DRONE
FILMMAKER: Mike Douglas // DURATION: 4 minutes
It’s a classic battle of man vs machine. Olympic bronze medallist Victor Muffat-Jeandet takes on drone pilot Jordan Temkin down the slalom ski course at Snowbird in Utah.
HOW TO RUN 100 MILES
FILMMAKER: Brendan Leonard // DURATION: 27 minutes
Jayson Sime had a tough start to life: he grew up facing poverty, homelessness, dyslexia and bullying. But he learnt to fight.
In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile mountain ultramarathon (including a daunting 6,000 metres of ascent), betting on his life-long resilience to carry him to the finish line of Colorado’s epic Run Rabbit Run. A film of pain, suffering, persistence – and glory.
FILMMAKER: Ignasi López Fàbregas // DURATION: 11 minutes
Marcel and Andrezj are legendary mountaineers. They have been the first to conquer the highest and hardest peaks.
To reach the summit of a daunting unclimbed peak they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and endure each other’s company for a very long time. But how will they cope when Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow?
THIS MOUNTAIN LIFE: COAST RANGE TRAVERSE
FILMMAKER: Grand Baldwin, Jen Rustemeyer // DURATION: 38 minutes
Martina and her 60-year-old mum Tania embark on an epic ski traverse from Vancouver to Alaska – six months and 2,300km of journeying though relentless mountain wilderness.
This Mountain Life is a multi-award-winning film and a riveting portrait of the human passion for adventure, set high in the peaks of British Columbia, Canada.
FAR OUT: KAI JONES
FILMMAKER: Teton Gravity Research // DURATION: 5 minutes
Kai Jones may be only 11, but in the mountains age doesn’t matter. This next level kid is following in his family’s ski tracks… right into backflips and tricks off cliffs. Watch in awe as one of the world’s most promising young freeride skiers takes on the mountain.
Wednesday 27 March (Blue Programme)
FILMMAKER: Joey Schusler // DURATION: 19 minutes
Witness a mesmerising blend of mountain sports and scenery as world class mountain biker Rajesh (RJ) Magar explores his homeland of Nepal, from the chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the mind-blowing Himalayan mountains beyond. An inspirational story of perseverance with high-adrenaline riding.
FOR THE LOVE OF MARY
FILMMAKERS: Simon Perkins & Kirk Horton // DURATION: 6 minutes
Try telling 97-year-old George Etzweiler you’re too old for running! He started competing in the annual 7.6 mile race up Mount Washington aged 69… and still takes part nearly 30 years later.
And more important than his lucky green running shorts, George carries something special in every step: the memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.
REEL ROCK: BREAK ON THROUGH
FILMMAKERS: Peter Mortimer, Matty Hong, Nick Rosen & Zachary Barr // DURATION: 26 minutes
The grade 5.15 in climbing is described as a number representing the unattainable, a ‘magical barrier’ similar to breaking the four-minute mile. At the start of 2017, only a few male climbers had achieved the grade and no women.
Enter an exceptionally driven 19-year-old, Margo Hayes. “When I sense others doubting what I can do, my determination triples,” says Margo on her quest to smash through the barrier.
SURVIVING THE OUTBACK
FILMMAKER: Michael Atkinson // DURATION: 43 minutes
Could you survive alone across hundreds of kilometres of remote Australian outback for a whole month, with nothing but a time capsule of antique stuff from 1932?
Trekking and sailing on a makeshift raft, adventurer ‘Outback Mike’ retraces the incredible journey of two German aviators stranded in the wilderness 80 years ago – and meets the ancestors of their unexpected rescuers.
INVERNESS – A different Banff Tour film called ‘DIVIDED’ by local filmmaker Mike Webster and Lee Craigie will feature instead of Surviving the Outback
ROGUE ELEMENTS: CORBET’S COULOUIR
FILMMAKER: Teton Gravity Research // DURATION: 4 minutes
Likened to plunging into an abyss, Corbet’s Couloir is America’s most feared ski run, terrifying to ski and snowboard even in the best conditions. Attempting it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, as Casey Brown and Cam McCaul find out in the first ever two-wheeled descent of the route…
