SCREENING BEGINS: 7:00 pm

Devotion
Directed by Matt Pycroft
5 mins
Libby Peter is one of the UK’s most respected climbers, with years of experience in expeditions, instructing, coaching and guiding around the world. In “Devotion” Libby reflects on how - quite unintentionally - climbing has shaped her life.

Monumental: Skiing Our National Parks
Directed by Chris Kitchen
45 mins
A ski film unlike any other, Monumental: Skiing Our National Parks, a Powder Productions Original presented by REI Co-Op, celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service by paying homage to these monuments of nature and solitude, reminding us skiers where we came from, and that we belong to something greater than ourselves. Follow contemporary explorers through the lens of KGB Productions with skiers Andy Mahre, Lynsey Dyer, Griffin Post, Colter Hinchliffe, Kalen Thorien, Greg Hill, Max Hammer, and Connery Lundin at Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park, and Olympic National Park.

Intermission

Canyon Song
Directed by Amy Marquis & Dana Romanoff
14 mins
A Navajo family balances modern life with the traditional "Navajo Way," teaching their children their language, culture, and ceremony within the sacred walls of Canyon de Chelly National Monument. This is the second film in the National Park Experience film series.

Good As Ever
Directed by Nate Gunn
6 mins
Nate Leavitt and Spencer Higa take their fishing passion to new regions in hopes to explore a bit of the unknown. We present a film that explores modern fishing, while staying true to anglers and their craft.

Scenes from the Green
Directed by Celin Serbo
5 mins
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the first person to walk up to a wall with no established climbing routes anywhere in site? That sense of curiosity and a desire for solitude and adventure are what spurred myself and other three like-minded friends to take a chance and float a forty-five-mile roadless stretch of the Green River in southeastern Utah to see what we could find. Inspired by the desert climbing pioneers that came before us and eager to make our own small contributions to our sport, we quickly realized that the experience would have lasting impressions that went well beyond the climbing.

Joyful in the Night
Directed by Matt Pycroft
5 mins
What is it that draws climbers from the warmth of their beds to the dark and foreboding mountains of Scotland and Alaska? Why do they endure hardship, misery and fear? Is it masochism, is it intrigue, or is it something else entirely? Written by poet Ben Silvestre and directed by Matt Pycroft, Joyful in the Night is a gloomy love letter to the darker mountains.

Slacker
Directed by Max Lowe
9 mins
Slacklining to many is a mystery, a line where impossible and possible collide. For Terry Acomb it’s simply a way of life. This Fruita based geologist has pioneered the sport in North America and is doing everything it takes to spread the passion nationwide. “Slacker” takes you inside Terry’s life uncovering his fundamental role in the slackline community and the work he’s put into the progression and accessibility of this sport.
