This year's films cover mountain sports like skiing, climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking along with exotic mountain culture from remote corners of the Earth. Revel in an evening of dramatic scenery, quirky comedy, artistic cinematography, and epic adventures. Titles include grand prize winning Crossing the Ice, Honnold 3.0, and The Gimp Monkeys.
Each screening will feature different programs of the best independent and documentary adventure films available. Expect over 2 hours of films at each screening, as well as an intermission with refreshments. There will be a drawing for an array of outdoor items to add to the festivities.
