How to Run 100 Miles
Jayson Sime had a tough start to life: he grew up facing poverty, homelessness, dyslexia and bullying. But he learned to fight. In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile mountain ultramarathon (including a daunting 6,000m of ascent), betting on his life-long resilience to carry him to the finish line of Colorado’s epic Run Rabbit Run. A film of pain, suffering, persistence – and glory.
FILMMAKER: Brendan Leonard
DURATION: 27 minutes
Marcel and Andrezj are legendary mountaineers. They have been the first to conquer the highest and hardest peaks. To reach the summit of a daunting unclimbed peak they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and endure each other’s company for a very long time. But how will they cope when Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow?

Ice and Palms
‘Unorthodox’ is the word used to describe German friends Max and Jochen’s many adventures, and their latest expedition – five weeks, 1,800km and 35,000km vertical metres self-propelled across the Alps – is no different. Starting in Germany and finishing at the Mediterranean, Ice and Palms tells of a raucous bikepacking journey, summiting mountains and skiing iconic lines along the way.
FILMMAKER: Jochen Mesle, Max Kroneck
DURATION: 25 minutes
