DON'T FEED THE COYOTES - 33.4 minutes - by Nick Stone Schearer - from California - Short synopsis: don't feed the coyotes' observes several years in the intertwined lives of San Francisco's urban coyotes. The story centers around a three year-old coyote, fondly-named Scout, and her territorial challenger, the scientifically-dubbed 15F.

SNOWSTORM - 4.5 minutes - by David Busse - from Wisconsin - Short synopsis: A meditative glimpse of birds navigating a snowstorm on Lake Michigan.


CONTINUUM - 2 minutes - by Harrison Mendel - from British Columbia - Short synopsis: Everything is connected. Each ride is an extension of the one before. Each reentry is a transition to the next launch. Each experience builds on one another toward a flow state of endless progression. Only the settings and perspectives change along this continuum. In this film by Brett Rheeder and Harrison Mendel, the sequence of individual movements are all linked together as a cohesive collection, with each maneuver unique yet forming a coherent visual journey across ever-changing landscapes by maintaining a locked perspective. Creating this visual trick of relentless flow and seamless transitions from one scene to the next was a technical challenge for both rider and cinematographer, and it required intense planning and dedication from the entire team to work through these problems. Anchoring the point of view to bring the audience along on Brett’s journey as everything else moves seamlessly along the continuum.


SKIN SWIMMER - 6.9 minutes - by Hannah Walsh - from British Columbia - Short synopsis: Waking up on a cold, winter Vancouver morning, most people choose to stay inside sipping their steaming coffee.

Through triumph and failure, Roberta trains for one of the most challenging feats in action sports; an ice mile in three degree water. Join resident seals on this gripping and adventurous journey, where Roberta’s intimate connection with the Salish Sea is front and center.
