About the films

Unfortunately, we can’t show all the films available on the tour and the selection process is challenging: there are so many good ones to choose from! Each of our three nights will feature a completely different set of films, covering a wide range of subject matter, with no particular overall theme. All three evenings will show a little over two hours worth of films, and follow a similar format: in the first half of the evening, you can expect one or two short films, followed by one or two longer features. After intermission (and door prizes) we’ll show a number of shorter films. There is a very slim chance that minor changes will happen in the list between now and January. We do consider this a “family friendly” show but a few films may We havehave “coarse language” warnings. Consider yourselves warned!

Monday, January 21st, 2019 [TICKETS]

Rogue Elements – Corbet’s Couloir – 3 minutes
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.

Fast Horse – 14 minutes
FAST HORSE follows the return of the Blackfoot bareback horseracing tradition in a new form: the Indian Relay. Siksika horseman Allison Red Crow struggles to build a team with second-hand horses and a new jockey, Cody Big Tobacco, to take on the best riders in the Blackfoot Confederacy at the Calgary Stampede.

Brother’s of Climbing – 7 minutes
How can you be what you can’t see? Mikhail Martin, co-founder of Brothers of Climbing said, “I literally typed, ‘Are there black climbers?’ in Google … someone said, ‘black people don’t climb.’”

Divided – 39 minutes
Follow Lee and Rickie in this raw and real portrayal of the places we go emotionally when under extreme duress while riding 190 kilometres a day from Banff to Mexico.

Viacruxis – 11 minutes
Marcel and Andrezj are a pair of legendary mountaineers. In order to achieve the summit of an unclimbed peak they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and stand each other’s company for a very long time. But Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow.

Far Out – Terrace BC – 5 minutes
Three pro skiers head to Terrace, British Columbia to fly off jumps, smash pillows and search for perfect ski lines. Little did they know that a passionate local would lead them to even more fun, laughs and stoke in the backcountry.

Land of the Wind – 18 minutes
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.

For the Love of Mary – 6 minutes
When 97-year-old runner George Etzweiler dons his lucky ancient green running shorts, he’s not not just running to the summit of Mt. Washington, Etzweiler carries something else special with him: the memory of his late wife of 68 years.

Reel Rock 12 – Break on Through – 25 minutes
Margo Hayes, a little-known 19 year old from Boulder, Colorado, has moved to Europe to train and climb with the goal of succeWe

eding on two of the most iconic 5.15s in France and Spain. But by pushing her body and mind to the absolute limit, she risks injury and failure in her quest to be the first.

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019 [TICKETS]

Skier vs Drone – 4 minutes
It’s the classic battle of man vs. machine but Olympic Bronze Medalist ski racer, Victor Muffat-Jeandet isn’t worried.

RJ Ripper – 19 minutes
The chaotic streets of Kathmandu may not seem like a typical breeding ground for world-class mountain bikers, but then again nothing is typical about Rajesh (RJ) Magar and his beat-up clunker.

This Mountain Life – 39 minutes
A mother-daughter team set out on a six-month ski traverse in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.

Beaver Believers – 12 minutes
Sherri Tippie, a hairdresser / Certified Live Beaver Trapper is working to restore the North American Beaver, the most industrious, ingenious, furry little engineer, to the watersheds of the American West.

Boy Nomad – 20 minutes
9-year old Janibek lives with his family in Mongolia’s Altai Mountains. His first love is racing horses, but this winter, his father will bring him on the toughest journey in a nomad’s life: the winter migration.

How to Run 100 Miles – 28 minutes
The odds were stacked against Jayson Sime early in life: poverty, homelessness, dyslexia, bullying. But he learned to fight. In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile mountain ultramarathon, betting on his lifelong resilience to carry him to the finish line.

Far Out – Kai Jones – 5 minutes
Eleven year old Kai Jones isn’t old enough to go to the movies alone or order a sandwich at the pub, but in the mountains age doesn’t matter. He is following in his family’s ski tracks… right into backflips and tricks off of cliffs.

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 [TICKETS]

DreamRide 3 – 6 minutes
Dreamride 3 is the conclusion to the award-winning mountain-bike trilogy from rider and director Mike Hopkins. In this final film, he rides epic singletrack in landscapes that continue to blow us away.

My Mom Vala – 9 minutes

Surviving the Outback – 44 minutes
Could you survive alone across hundreds of kilometres of remote outback for a whole month, trekking and sailing on a makeshift raft, with nothing but a time capsule of antique stuff from 1932? Mike wasn’t sure he could pull it off either!

Brotherhood of Skiing – 10 minutes
Since 1973, the National Brotherhood of Skiers has overcome barriers by bringing soul, smiles and a party to the mountain.

Grizzly Country – 11 minutes
After serving in the Vietnam War, author and eco-warrior Doug Peacock spent years alone in the Wyoming and Montana wilderness observing grizzly bears. This time in the wild changed the course of his life. With the protection of Yellowstone grizzlies now under threat, Peacock reflects on the importance of habitat and why he continues to fight for wild causes.

The Passage – 25 minutes
In 1974 a small determined team built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. The Passage is a story about revisiting that journey, fathers and sons, and the wild places that define us.

The Frenchy – 14 minutes
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.

>GET TICKETS FOR ALL THREE NIGHTS<
