Spellbound (5 mins) Director Richard Sidey, NZ. Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping.
Mount Logan (14 minutes) Director Alex Marchesseau, France, subtitles. A journey to climb Mount Logan 5959m in Canada, then ski, snowboard and monoski down the 3,800 metre ridge over 48 days and 700km.
Katherine’s Marathon (26 mins) Director Nicolas Falquet, France, subtitles. Katherine was the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route (NZ grade 35) and she decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps, with Jungfrau Marathon, a route with a radically different style.
Made in Aotearoa (37 mins) Directors Andy Deere and Ryan Heron, NZ. Young up-and-coming surfer Kehu Butler shows us his favourite spots around NZ as we learn about his family and deep connections to friends and ocean. This is the first time an NZ film has won this award, EPIC!
Ocean To Asgard (34 mins) Director Heather Mosher, Canada. Four friends travel to Baffin Island for a 40-day human-powered adventure, featuring bigwall first ascents, whitewater paddle descents, and wild Arctic flamingos.
In the Theatre of the Gogs (19 mins) Director Richard Sidey, NZ. A contemplation of art and adventure in the southern wilds of New Zealand by two Wanaka locals: landscape photographer Christopher David Thompson and adventure filmmaker Richard Sidey. This film is the unexpected result of their two unique perspectives.
