The Process (UK, Matt Hardy/Matt Pycroft, 2022) 15 min.

Tom Randall is a rock climber known for his commitment to training and the courageous and, at times, outrageous challenges he sets himself. This time, Tom has set his mind on becoming proficient and efficient in the sport of fell running and he has a madcap idea to try and complete the previously un-attempted Lakes Classic Rock Challenge and a Bob Graham link-up in 24 hours. That’s 15 classic Lakeland rock climbs, 42 summits, and 142 kilometres. What lengths is he willing to go to achieve his goal and when is enough, enough? Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than hanging on...

Clean Mountains (Geertjan Lassche, 2021) 19 Min.

Sheri (USA, James Q Martin, 2022) Tour Edit - 19 min

Sheri Tingey’s 60-year career as a woman who has defied the odds by starting a company at age 50 that has revolutionized the outdoor industry. The film is a story about the hurdles she overcame to launch the company, about the ways she hid from view so that people would judge the boats, not her role in creating them. At this watershed moment of reckoning around equity and inclusion for the industry, Sheri’s life story will both warm audiences, and ask them to grapple with important questions about who belongs.
