Highlights from 2019’s selection
This Mountain Life
Martina and her 60-year-old mother Tania embark on an epic ski traverse from Vancouver to Alaska. That’s six months and 2300km (1430 miles) of journeying through relentless mountain wilderness. This Mountain Life is a multi-award-winning film and a riveting portrait of the human passion for adventure. Set high in the peaks of British Columbia, Canada.
A mesmerising blend of mountain sports and culture as world-class mountain biker Rajesh (RJ) Magar explores his homeland of Nepal. The film ranges from the chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the mind-blowing Himalayan mountains beyond. An inspirational story of perseverance with high-adrenaline riding in stunning scenery.
For the Love of Mary
Try telling 97-year-old George Etzweiler you’re too old for running! He started competing in the annual 12km (7.6 mile) race up Mount Washington aged 69. She still takes part nearly 30 years later! More important than his lucky green running shorts, George carries something special in every step: the memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.
