Ruby Film Program
Mother Earth is a short narrated by Daniel Wells, a member of Lil’wat First Nation. The film showcases the deep connection both bikers and First Nations have with nature and the necessity to listen and protect their environment. From open meadows to ancient forests, we discover stunning landscapes through the riding of professional-biker William Robert.
Pretty Strong: Fernanda
In this segment of Never Not Collective’s feature length all women’s climbing film, we follow Fernanda Rodriguez’s in El Salto, Mexico, as she runs a campground, owns a climbing gym, and picks her hardest climbing objective in 5 years.
The Long Today
My Dad turned 70 this summer. So he found a “river” on a map, repaired one of his old wood canoes, and invited his family to help him celebrate the big day. Only a few of us showed up.
12 000 km
The prevailing climate threat inspires a group of Swedish friends to travel by train and ferry from Stockholm all the way to Japan, in search of deep powder and the adventure of a lifetime. Along the world’s longest train ride, they make various stops in Siberia's remote forests, exploring untouched mountains and experiencing the special Russian culture from the interior.
Zeppelin Skiing (Tour Edit)
It's a world first: three athletes fly with a huge zeppelin to the Eastern Alps in Austria to abseil and ski and snowboard on steep terrain.
Fly Spiti - The Short Odyssey (Tour Edit)
Two of the most experienced paragliding pilots engage in exploration of the Spiti Valley in the Indian Himalaya. Thomas de Dorlodot, a multiple world record holder, leads Horacio Llorens, a six-time aerobatic world champion, to find out why few have tried to fly in this place where, according to local folklore, the gods live.
Frozen In Time
Lured by the vibe of a bygone era in skiing, three of the sport’s pre-eminent stars—Eric Hjorleifson, Mark Abma and Chris Rubens—venture to Mt. Cain, a small, community-run hill on northern Vancouver Island, BC. Getting action shots for a ski film is merely their secondary objective; the principal aim is to camp in the parking lot and immerse themselves in a local scene full of characters and soul.
