Where the Wild Things Play
Director: Krystle Wright

In Constant Motion
Director: Cameron Sylvester

Adam Campbell’s life has revolved around motion. As one of the world’s top ultra runners, his mantra has been simple: ‘If you’re not moving, you’re dead’. This life of movement came to an abrupt halt on August 30th, 2016, when he experienced a near fatal accident while attempting a traverse through Roger’s Pass in BC.

Moment
Director: Zak Griffler
Origin: USA
They say that when you’re first born you have two real fears. One of them is the fear of heights. Engaging with that fear starts with a step–and ends with a step. The space between is just a series of moments.
