Be inspired by women who push boundaries. Full Moon is a two-year film project documenting the past, present, and future of women's snowboarding. Through interviews and resurrected classic footage, Runway Films is producing a film that pays tribute to the history of women's snowboarding and showcases how it has influenced and encouraged the current state of the sport.
Dream Job is a comedy documentary that gives a unique and humorous perspective on women in the action sports industry. The small town of Revelstoke, BC, is home to some of the biggest players in the mountain industry. Here we find three local leaders who have each contributed to levelling the playing field in the male-dominated big-mountain industry in a way that is uniquely female. Comedian Katie Burrell challenges herself to “keep up” with these exceptional female leaders which presents a humorous contrast and emphasizes the achievements of these women.
Evolution of Dreams
What happens when the passion for your dreams fades? Do you just stop? Or do you search for what’s missing and uncover new dreams and goals? Eva and Jackie’s journeys have taken them from regulated ski courses to big mountain skiing which allowed them more freedom. Throughout that journey, they’ve discovered another aspect of skiing, ski mountaineering. In this new discipline, they have to tackle new challenges and conquer new fears. It’s their evolution of dreams.
