Climbing out of Disaster 2019 Best Short
In the immediate aftermath of Puerto Rico's Hurricane Maria, a group of local climbers bands together to use their skills and knowledge for the greater good of the community.
Brotherhood of Skiing
Since 1973, the National Brotherhood of Skiers has overcome barriers by bringing soul and smiles to the mountain. Formed during the height of the black power movement, the organization is dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of color on the slopes and supporting black youth in snow sports. Today, the NBS hosts the largest gathering of black skiers in the US and represents 53 ski clubs with over 3,000 members across the country.
Hear Our Olympics
The wild Olympic Peninsula is like nowhere else. It has been recognized as a National Park, a wilderness area, an International Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, and the quietest space in the lower 48. Yet, the park's rare and distinctive soundscape is threatened by new and unnatural noises: Navy electronic warfare training by jets in the skies over the park.
Explore the mountains, glaciers, and rivers of Valdez by fat bike with a crew of boundary-pushing female athletes hailing from Alaska and beyond. Blue is a fantastical journey into a young girl's imagination and a testament to the inherent creativity, innovation, and strength forged in women of the north.
