CHAOS THEORY: POINT OF DIVERGENCE – 4 minutes – Mike McKay – Ottawa ON – Point of Divergence is part 3 of the 3 part series Chaos Theory: It is a long and reflective journey for the paddler. He takes to the sky, to the streets of the. far off city; the faces around him oblivious to his purpose.

NATURE-RX, PART 1, 2 and 3 – 2 minutes – Justin Bogardus – Colorado – Nature and humanity have a terrible marketing problem. Polar bears, hurricanes, and ice caps are not waking people up fast enough. It’s too impersonal and too easy to ignore. Here comes PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH, a hilarious, unflinching, timely look at what a person really needs to save themselves, each other, and our planet. Set in the perfect post-modern capsule – a drug commercial, PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH reminds us that those who spend time in Nature are not only statistically more happy, relaxed, free, and joyful, but also importantly more likely to make sound environmental decisions. PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH is a small film with a big message. We believe everyone should see this film – to benefit from Nature and to enjoy the wild outdoors!

TOO HOT, TOO COLD. 3 minutes – Ross Knowlton – Millinocket – My films are typically focused on broadcasting the creative side of skateboarding and snowskating. The filming, skating, and editing is done entirely by myself. I’ve been making these films for five years now and have no plans on stopping anytime soon.

In The Unrideables: Alaska Range, one of the foremost experts on human flight, Jon DeVore, sets out with a team of elite aerial athletes to evolve the sport in North America’s most remote and demanding mountain environment.”
