Love, Trails, & Dinosaurs
Draft Agency, Alex Oliver, Edy Recendez | 2018 | 8min
This heartwarming film tells the story of the first person with autism to hike every trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Garan Moore. His mother, Theresa, shares their story of a journey for weight loss that developed into a passion for hiking - and 900 miles later...one historic achievement.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating
Elisabeth Tova Bailey | 2019 | 15 min
When a woman is bedridden with a mysterious pathogen, a forest snail (Neohelix albolabris) takes up residence on her nightstand. Together, woman and snail share a captivating journey of survival and resilience. An intimate and surprising live-action true story, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is adapted from the award-winning memoir of the same title and narrated by Daryl Hannah.

Positive Forward Motion
Chris Gallaway, Jennifer Pharr Davis | 2019 | 14 min
Hiker and endurance athlete, Jennifer Pharr Davis, reflects on the challenges and lessons that life has brought her following her record-setting thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail. While spending time alone on the trail, Jen looks back over what she has learned and how she has grown through hiking, becoming a mother, and growing a business.

Venture Out
Palmer Morse, Jamie DiNicola, Matt Mikkelsen | 2020 | 15 min
This is a story of overcoming odds, the power of resilience, and ultimately, the ever-lasting effects of LGBTQ community building. The Venture Out Project, founded by Perry Cohen, is a nonprofit organization that brings LGBTQ folks together outdoors. In sharing Perry's story, and hearing from the other Venture Out Project participants, we get a glimpse into the healing qualities of nature and life-saving community bonds that are being forged as a result of Perry's work.

Iniskim
Daniel Glick, Sarah Clarke, Mariah Ore, Craig Falcon, Lauren Monroe | 2019 | 9 min
Shot on the real-life Blackfeet buffalo drive and inspired by a true story, Iniskim follows a young girl's journey from trauma to recovery. By reconnecting with the ancient power of the buffalo, the timeless landscape of her ancestors, and the wisdom of her culture, her life is changed forever.

When the Tide Goes Out
Eliot Galán, Hillary Hyland | 2019 | 32 min
Following thousands of years of sustainable stewardship by the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, encroaching industry and development polluted their traditional territory surrounding Vancouver to the point that food harvesting had to be banned in 1972. Today, over 45 years later, the Tsleil-Waututh have restored some specific habitats within their territory to safe levels for clam harvesting, both as a means for environmental justice and for the reclamation and rejuvenation of their culture.
