A four minute truth bomb! Couldn't love this more.

'We are both young enough and old enough to think for ourselves and do something about it' 'I’m learning just as much from staying at home as I ever did going away.' This articulates the tipping point of a generation with a sympathetic, inspired community.

It's amazing what you can achieve with a surfboard and a Spade. 🌏

Classy Irish surfing movie with an uplifting environmental activist edge

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Idealistic and challenging. On the surface it's a very gentle film about living off the land and surfing, but it poses the uncomfortable question, what am I doing to shape our planet's future?

Anna Paxton

The story of a group of pro surfers who have left the international surfing circuit in order to grow organic vegetables on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

This is a smashing, smashing portrayal of sharing Stories and sport to combat ignorance and disconnection.

Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.

Sweet, entertaining and beautifully made feminist MTB film... which is really about pizza... and lesbianism. Who doesn't like pizza and lesbianism?

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

In 2002, mountain bikers and entrepreneurs Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller moved to Fruita, Colorado, in search of cheap rent, world-class single track, and free time to ride. Over 15 years later, the two unconventional women have helped reshape one of the state’s most conservative towns, uniting the community through advocacy, inclusivity, and damn good pizza.

Inspiring electric adventures!

Anna Paxton

Another welcome addition to the growing trend for reflective adventuring movies where men look at how selfish some adventure actitivites really are.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Record-breaking mountain endurance athlete, Greg Hill, has never shied away from a goal. Through his time spent in the mountains he's seen the affects of climate change first-hand and came to realize the way he was approaching the mountains was only making the problem worse. Two years ago he changed his approach and set out to climb 100 peaks without burning any fossil fuels. But the question is: will it make a difference?

Urban ultra running - in San Francisco. Clever, interesting and beautifully shot with an understated but gripping spiritual and political edge. This film will put a smile on your face.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

A character study of a city. The stars are the people that live in San Francisco as Ricky Gates runs every street to get to know them better.

Anna Paxton

In the same thread of his trans continental run across America and getting to know a very thin line of his own country, Rickey Gates decides to run every single street in San Francisco - to get to know a very small area of America, as well as its people, intimately. With over 1100 Miles of streets the film documents Rickey’s journey, and the people he meets long the way, as he runs into midst of one of the most iconic and diverse cities in the world.

Really motivating piece, made me want to book a trip, contact brands, get out there with Surfboards.

A raw slice of Cuba, recommended.

Anna Paxton

Interesting social study of surfing in Cuba. Quite gritty but uplifting.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Inside the communist country of Cuba exists a small but passionate community of surfers who, due to a lack of economic opportunity and governmental support for the sport, number no more than 150. This film colorfully documents the Cuban surf community's struggles and how they overcome them in order to pursue their passion–Cubans don't think about the problem, they think about the solution.

Watch this. 'We are all human's here'

Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.

In a time when there's so much focus on division, this is a sweet (if idealistic) film that reminds us to check our imaginary borders and reconnect.

Anna Paxton

During the longest government shutdown in American history, we assembled a team from Mexico and a team from the USA to establish a highline across the border between us. “In a world that is constantly trying to tear us apart, we are here to come together, to cross those imaginary lines that divide us...”

Our greatest hope for this film is that we create something that goes far beyond ourselves… Using this highline as a medium for sparking a conversation and creating a positive shift in our world. Thank you for being a part of this story. Let's make some waves together.

An intimate short film exploring masculinity, trauma healing and idiosyncratic group dynamics.

Hilarious film about the East German Olympic swimming team. 👙 Must watch

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Cold - very cold - water swimming, by amusing codgers old and young. A slow burner but there's more going on here than you first realise.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Every weekend through the winter, a group of middle-aged men, who dub themselves the East German Ladies Swimming Team, plunge into the freezing waters of a pond in central London. 'The Home for Broken Toys' follows the team through one season to explore their motivations for braving the extreme cold each week, a decision which seems alien to the filmmaker. The reasons she discovers are by turns comedic, poignant, and profound.
