Reasons to go to this film event:

2) You like watching people do insane things.
3) You primarily want to see the 46 min video on bike touring (from Alaska to S. America). 
4) You rock.

See you there!

MedeoZ
France, 2008, 6 minutes
Directed and Produced by Guillaume Broust
Website: http://kyom.blogspot.com/2008/02/og-team.html
Classification: General – no advisory
Focus: Multi-sport, humour, family-friendly
Filmed in the Mont Blanc range, this short features six different mountain sports: climbing, skiing, snowboarding, speed riding, paragliding and BASE jumping.
A photographer wants to take one shot showing all the sports, instead of taking separate photos of each sport. It takes a lot of work!

Africa Revolutions Tour
USA, 2009, 20 minutes
Directed by Rush Sturges
Produced by Tyler Bradt
Website: www.Rev-Inn.com
Classification: Parental Guidance - coarse language
Focus: White-water kayaking, Sun Catcher’s Project (NGO in Africa)
From the crocodile-infested White Nile in Uganda, to big-water first descents in Madagascar, the film follows this group of friends on their dangerous mission.
Accompanying the team is Rita Riewerts, the founder of the Sun Catchers Project, a non-profit that installs solar cooking facilities
in African orphanages, hospitals and communities.
Join the team as they set out on an ambitious kayaking expedition in eastern Africa.
Every cent this film generates will be donated to the Sun Catchers Project 
 
 
Take a Seat
UK, 2009, 46 minutes
Directed by: Ed Stobart, Dominic Gill
Produced by: Lucy Wilcox
Website: www.ginger.tv ; www.takeaseat.org
Classification: General - nudity
Focus: Human story, adventure, biking
Dominic Gill’s mission is to cycle the 32,000 kilometres from the northern coast of Alaska to the southern tip of South America, on a tandem bike, picking up random strangers on the way. A gripping tale of two years and two continents, full of extraordinary characters and incidents.
 
The Ultimate Skiing Showdown
Canada, 2009, 4 minutes
Directed and produced by David McMahon
Website: www.xczone.tv
Classification: General - no advisory
Focus: Nordic Skiing, Family-friendly
The final sprint showdown between the fastest skiers on Earth in juxtaposition with a stunt performer showing some of the sickest moves on Nordic skis. A lot of fun!
 
Rowing the Atlantic
USA, 2009, 26 minutes
Directed and produced by JB Benna
Website: www.journeyfilm.com
Classification: General – no advisory
Focus: Sea-kayaking, adventure, human story, family-friendly
A few years ago, Roz Savage gave up what for many would be an ideal life (husband, great job, big house), picked up a few pairs of rowing oars and a boat to go with them and set off across the Atlantic Ocean – alone – in a rowboat.
 
Deep/Shinsetsu
Japan, 2009, 3 minutes
Directed and Produced by Masaki Sekiguchi
Website: www.ebisfilms.jp
Classification: General – no advisory
Focus: Powder skiing, family-friendly
"Shinsetsu" means deep powder in Japanese. This short film expresses a typical day in the mountains in Japan.
 
First Ascent: Alone on the Wall
USA, 2009, 24 minutes
Directed and produced by Peter Mortimer and Nick Rosen
Website: www.senderfilms
Classification: General – coarse language
Focus: Rock Climbing, free solo climbing
After gaining international climbing renown for his landmark free-solo of "Moonlight Buttress" (V, 5.12+, 9 pitches) in Zion National Park, Utah, in April 2008, 24-year-old Alex Honnold moves on to his next big challenge: the first free-solo of the "Regular Northwest Face" route (VI, 5.12a, 23 pitches) on Yosemite’s Half Dome.
 
Project Megawoosh
Germany, 2009, 4 minutes

Yeah, I was gonna go but since it's just a one-evening deal there's no screening of Revolution One, either. (A new film by Dan Heaton, the guy in the Columbia Sportswear commercial and one of the pioneers of extreme unicycle filming)
