FROM MY WINDOW
BANFF AWARD: Best Short Film
From her bedroom window, Melissa Simpson has gazed at the highest peaks in Colorado for her whole life. They stand as a symbol of her greatest dream and her biggest obstacle, because Melissa has cerebral palsy. With the help of her friend and mentor, blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, she sets out to conquer something far greater than a summit.
MARKUS EDER: ULTIMATE SKI RUN
Italian freeskier Markus Eder set his sights on a seemingly impossible goal – to push the boundaries of three freeski disciplines in one ultimate top-to-bottom run. The result is a near-perfect ride, where the former Freeride World Tour champ takes us from the high peaks of Zermatt, Switzerland, to the valley bottom of Luttach, Italy, in a display of mind-blowing tricks and cinematic excellence.
Professional snowboarder and climber Lonnie Kauk embarks on a journey to honour his indigenous Yosemite roots and to connect with his legendary father, Ron, by repeating some of his groundbreaking iconic climbs… including a second ascent of the route Magic Line, considered to be one of the world’s hardest climbs.
Dave Van Dame, aka the Farmer, spent his winters harvesting one of the most precious crops on earth: powder snow. A local legend in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, Dave retired at the age of 39, using his passion for efficiency and sustainability to keep him skiing powder turns from his favourite chairlift all the way into his 70s.
