Onyx Film Program
Five top freeskiers and one World Champion drone pilot go Cat Skiing in BC for a week. Their instructions: charge as hard as you can everyday.
Where I Belong
Chris Hill, an environmental lobbyist and angler, never saw people like herself on the river until recently. Through social media platforms like Instagram, traditionally underrepresented voices are creating communities to encourage one another and amplify their message - we belong here too.
Far Far Est
Far Far Est is a proud Québecois short film about Charles and Olivier’s love for skiing and surfing on the North-American East coast. While they might not be dropping into the craziest ski lines you will see this year, the two explorers make sure to turn this trip into a real-life fairy tale.
Running The Roof (Tour Edit)
Three friends, bonded by a love of running, were desperate to ditch their desks and go on an adventure. One night, after a few too many drinks, they placed a bet. They would spin a globe and wherever their finger landed, they would run. This is a story without finish lines or medals but rather a story about what happens when you trust in nothing but your own two feet to carry you across one of the last truly wild landscapes on earth.
Voice Above Water
Voice Above Water is the story of Wayan, a 90-year-old fisherman who can no longer fish because of the amount of plastic piling up in the ocean. Instead he uses his fishing boat and net to pull trash from the water in hopes of being able to fish again.
Free as Can Be
When a young climber infatuated with climbing history meets an old legend, he commits to helping him accomplish his lifelong goal of free-climbing El Capitan.
One Star Reviews: National Parks
They say National Parks are America's greatest idea. A symbol of excellence and inspiration. Well for some... there's still plenty of room for improvement!
