The Process

Director: Matt Pycroft

Tom Randall is a world-class crack climber. He is also a terrible runner, which is why his latest challenge seems like an odd choice. He decided to link up two of the Lake District's biggest and toughest endurance challenges, the Bob Graham Round and The Classic Rock challenge into one hellish 24-hour mad dash. A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.UK, 10'


Director: Richard Sidey

Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping, as David Walden and friends venture into the mountains around his home in New Zealand.New Zealand, 05'

Mhairi Helme’s poetic reflection of a 100 mile run around the English Lake District inspired by the landscape, the people she meets and her fell running hero, Joss Naylor.

The Traverse

Directors: Ben Tibbetts & Jake Holland

Facing some of the most challenging terrain in the world, Valentine Fabre and Hillary Gerardi, two world class athletes, attempt to be the first women to ski the Haute Route non-stop from Chamonix to Zermatt.

A Woman's Place

Director: Menna Wakeford

Chasing Ghosts

Director: Eric Bendick

Deep in remote Florida swamps, a team of researchers and photographers have made a new discovery that upends what we thought we knew about the ghost orchid, one of the world’s most iconic flowers, and how it reproduces.

Running Thoughts

Director - Fitz Cahall

Sometimes, an hour is all you get. Often, an hour is all you need. In those 60 minutes, for every question that gets answered, a new one gets asked. Tension releases into the passing wind. Goals are reaffirmed. Internal yarns are spun. Knots get untangled, and everything makes sense — even if you've forgotten it all by the time you get home. Join trail runners Perry Cohen, Junko Kazukawa and José González to hear what runs through their head as they run through nature.
