Paragliding | Poland | 25min
dir. Martin Smekal 

You Never Know is a documentary about Polish paragliding star and 2013 world Champion Klaudia Bulgakow’s journey to the top in paragliding. Klaudia Bulgakow has been paragliding since 1999. Through persistence, dedication and great passion she became one of the most successful female pilots—she won World Champion title 2013, European podium 2016, World Cup Superfinal Podium 2018, and much more. But it’s not only about the medals and podium places. The journey in pursuit of personal excellence is just as important, as are the friends you meet on the way and those you influence and motivate to pursue their own goals. 


Swimming | Australia | 10min
dir. Ash Ball, Ed Coney 

Sea Birds is an inspiring story that explores the lives of 25 ladies who swim in the ocean together everyday. No matter how much experience you’ve had in life it can be as unpredictable as the ocean. Pauline and Mina demonstrate that there’s always a hand of friendship that will find you and hold you when you least expect it. Side by side, or bum cheek to bum cheek, the Sea Birds have discovered that the cold water is unpleasant, that it’s hard to be pretentious when you’re in the nude and that in the middle of the ocean you just might find the freedom you’re searching for. 


Slacklining | USA | 29min
