(PLAYLIST IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
The Process - Director - Matt Pycroft - ColdHouse Collective - UK, 15 min
Tom Randall is a world class crack climber. He is also a terrible runner, which is why his latest challenge seems like an odd choice. He decided to link up two of the Lake District's biggest and toughest endurance challenges, the Bob Graham Round and The Classic Rock challenge into one hellish 24 hour mad dash. A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.
Spellbound - Director - Richard Sidey - NZ - 5 min
Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping, as David Walden and friends venture into the mountains around his home in New Zealand.
Leo Rodgers - USA - 6 min
Leo Rodgers lost his leg, then he rediscovered the bicycle. Now he's unstoppable.
Chasing Ghosts - Director - Eric Bendick - United States - 10 min
In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid, a team spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snake-laden water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to nausea-inducing heights. They came away with an even deeper love for Florida's wildest wetlands - and with surprising revelations that may help to conserve the endangered orchid and its shrinking home. Awarded Judges Special Prize at our 2020 Festival.
