Tidal directed by Trygve Heide (South Africa)
Lucky to have survived after a horrific BASE jumping accident, Lisa Beasley must now face an extended recovery period that brings her closer to her mother as well as her first love; the sea. She discovers the beauty of the Cape Town tidal pools and she must now work to protect them from the harmful historical cleaning protocols that kill the marine life she has come to love.

The Ghosts Above directed by Taylor Rees & Renan Ozturk (United States)
Everest is the eternal subject of mountain films. Who achieved the first summit? Was it really George Mallory? On this quest there are reflections on the history of Everest expeditions, the fraught relationship between indigenous guides and expeditioners, the rigours of high-alpine mountaineering, and the commercialisation of sacred Everest. A brutally honest look at the current state of affairs.

Lock Up Rock Down directed by Nico Hambleton (United Kingdom)
Jerome Mowat takes us through the challenges he faced as a front-line paramedic during the pandemic, and how he used climbing as an escape.

Africa Riding – Karim, Rwanda directed by Aurélien Biette & Liz Gomis (France)
Africa Riding is a documentary series that presents a community of riders that try to create a new social and cultural order in Africa. Karim, an amazing Rwandan roller skater, performs incredible stunts and tricks. Thanks to his talent, he has been hired to give roller skating lessons to children. In his lessons, he mixes children from all backgrounds and from his own Gakinjiro neighborhood in Kigali.

Madman Trails of Bhutan directed by Scott Secco (Canada)
The Kingdom of Bhutan in the mighty eastern Himalayas is the new frontier in the world of enduro mountain biking. Riders can traverse the numerous ancient trails that make up an intricate web of pathways and dirt paths that dot and connect the kingdom’s diverse twenty districts, providing a backdrop for a ride in one of the world’s most pristine landscapes.

The Chairlift directed by Mike Douglas (Canada)
An ode to the often-overlooked device that enabled a sport and still acts as a central pillar of ski culture to this day. The film shares the stories about the access it offers, and connections forged while passing the time back to the top of the lift.
