Get ready for heart-thumping action, big laughs, and pure inspiration. Each year, the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival takes award-winning and other selected films on tour around Canada and to various locations throughout the USA and around the world.

This year’s tour will feature the following films:

In a place that has a reputation for decadence and discomfort, a little-known ultramarathon is attracting hundreds of runners to experience its one-of-a-kind environment of art, music, and nature. Watch several wildly spirited runners take on the heat, dust, and distance while being encouraged on by a bizarre group of revelers. (Running/humor, 12 minutes)

Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents’ car, wishing you were somewhere else? At the ski hill, on your bike, anything but on the road, listening to your parents talk about boring adult stuff. (Skiing/Childhood, 5 minutes)

Survival Run is an ultra-distance obstacle race that takes runners on a journey into their souls. Only a fraction will finish, but all will learn deeply about themselves and their fellow runners. Join these athletes’ journey through the inaugural Survival Run Canada. (Trail running, 24 minutes)

There are very few parts of our world that are unexplored. But between two spires that have been climbed endlessly, there are spaces that are very much unknown. “Moment” is a lush balance of action, scenic and aerial footage. It tracks one man's saga to complete an epic highline in the spectacular Needles of California. “Moment” explores the breathtaking spaces between earth and sky, fear and elation, success and failure. (Slacklining/climbing, 9 minutes)

Hugo and Lipe are back on the wall to face all challenges of alpine climbing — frozen and wet rock, poor communication with each other, inner demons, selfies, and the frigid, ever-changing weather. (Climbing/humor, 9 minutes)

Imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. (Adventure/visual arts, 5 minutes)

One woman's extreme solo stand up paddle-boarding voyage, circumnavigating the wild, rugged and beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland, highlighting the vulnerability to plastic pollution, and empowering positive change. (Environmentalism/Paddling/Women, 25 minutes)

Friday night at the local watering hole and … where the ladies at? Answer: BASE jumping from high desert cliffs, performing tricks on slacklines, climbing granite routes, shredding singletrack, skiing backcountry lines and generally leaving you fellas behind. This rowdy ode to female athletes by Krystle Wright leaves no doubt about the state of women in today’s outdoor world. (Mountain adventure/women, 4 minutes)

The Sedona tour stop of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival is made possible by a generous grant from the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona.
