For the Love of Mary

Film Screening — Duration: 7 mins

WORLD PREMIERE
The first time 97-year-old runner George Etzweiler completed the race up the northeast’s tallest peak, Mount Washington, he was 69 years old. Despite having a pacemaker, the State College, Pennsylvania resident continues to compete in the grueling 7.6-mile race up nearly 4,700 feet of paved road, breaking his own record each year for oldest finisher. In addition to his ancient, lucky, green running shorts, Etzweiler carries something else special with him: The memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.

The Wolf Pack

The Wolf Pack

Film Screening — Duration: 12 mins

WORLD PREMIERE
High in the San Juan Mountains above Silverton, Colorado, a pack of runners roams, jogging through meadows, hiking over mineral-stained peaks, ducking through forests and exploring the rugged landscape of their backyard. It’s the Braford-Lefebvre family — mom, dad and three kids — who have used running both as a healing mechanism and a tool to help them experience life together. The Wolf Pack chronicles a family raised the right way — on fresh air, high peaks and the wonder of the outdoors.

North of Nightfall

North of Nightfall

Film Screening — Duration: 60 mins

WORLD PREMIERE
The best thing about this extreme biking film is not the extreme biking, although a lot of that is definitely jaw-dropping. It’s the cinematography, which is rich and skillfully done. And it’s the location (an uninhabited island in the Arctic), which is as sere and stark and otherworldly as a moonscape. And it’s the useful geology lessons and climate science that are layered into the narrative. These elements, combined, help push North of Nightfall toward a stratum of filmmaking that’s well above its adrenaline base.
