Scheduled Program:

BORN FROM JUNK – 14.5 minutes – by Mike Horn, Galin Foley – from CO – Born From Junk traces the outlaw roots of mountain biking back to its raw beginnings in Crested Butte, where a crew of unlikely pioneers in pursuit of wild times in the mountains blossomed into a global phenomenon.

HOME OR HIGH WATER – 11.5 minutes – by Dave Weich – from Portland, Oregon – Battered by stronger, more frequent storms, residents are faced with an impossible decision: rebuild their home, or abandon their property and find a way to start again somewhere else. This film brings the conversation about the climate crisis into the practical reality of people’s lives. How are communities at risk adapting to these ever-progressing challenges?

DIRTBAGS – 5.18 minutes – by E.C. Brego – from Maine – Through her company, Oterra Designs, Erin O’Toole designs and manufactures handmade, one-of-a-kind chalk bags that are tough enough to withstand winter climbing in her home state of Maine.

TO ROW AND LET GO – 27.5 minutes – by Doug Welch – from Maine – MITA Executive Director Doug Welch started ocean rowing, built a wooden boat, and set out on an island adventure.
