Creation Theory (20min)
A surfer on a wave, a snowboarder on a peak, a musician in front of a crowd. Swell, gravity, rhythm. Both sport and music are a kind of electric alchemy — harnessing a form of raw cosmic energy and transforming it into totally new expressions and ways to connect with our world.
Half adventure film, half music doc, and half cinematic surrealist spacewalk through the raw landscape of Iceland, this film explores the parallels between these worlds of creation, and the sources of energy that fuel our moments of inspiration.
Featuring: Elena Hight, Robin Van Gyn, Pete Devries, and Griff Washburn

Kitted with a. pair of skis and skins, Michelle Parker flies among the Wrangell St. Elias range in Alaska — accessed only by bush plane–in search of steep couloirs and first descents.
Yours Truly (6min)
Synopsis: Swapping the pen for the lens, this is a visual letter recapping a winter with pro skier Cole Richardson. Filmed purely in the heart of B.C. backcountry, this short film captures the hunt for powder, pillows, lines, and backcountry booters through the juxtaposition of fast, real lifestyle and slow, beautiful action.
Good Medicine (10min)
A group of friends, endless adventures, and a big appetite for a good time. Ride along as this crew dives headfirst into whatever is thrown at them whether it’s deep snow, high alpine lines, an afternoon fishing for dinner, or some wind-blown surf—all with a smile on their face.
Unfinished Business (8min)
Greg Hill is not accustomed to failing to reach his goals. But summiting and skiing all 20 peaks along the classic Spearhead Traverse in a single day is one goal that has remained elusive for 20 years. Greg's ski touring career began in the Spearhead Range and since then he has continued to return to the traverse between his other exploits to test his skills and fitness. After 3 failed attempts over the years and recent health issues that mark the steady decline of his physical prowess, at 47, he isn't as fast as he once was yet he is as determined as ever. But will that be enough?
