Needing some inspiration this year? Grab your tickets for Rise Up, a collection of films documenting the lives of the people who are coming up with innovative and compassionate ways to defy the possibility of prejudice and find adventure throughout the world.
This year’s Rise Up collection includes:
Expedition Reclamation - Weaving together a tapestry of voices from women of colour who are redefining the term ‘outdoorsy’, this film revels in the excitement of finding belonging in the outdoors through resilience, healing and joy.
Ryan’s Story - Ryan lived homeless on the streets of Holyhead from the age of 13 to 18. Then he discovered climbing. With some help along the way he has turned his life around - this is his story.
Free to Run - Don’t miss out on the chance to see a film-favourite that got the whole team at Kendal Mountain Festival talking. Follow top ultra runner and human right lawyer Stephanie Case as she trains for the 450km Tor Des Glaciers and her work advocating for Afghan women through the Free To Run organisation. Watch the astonishing story unfold as Stephanie works to get the team out of Afghanistan as the Taliban enter Kabul.
Ignite Your Passion - 31 years after a paralysing car crash, Kevin Wilson is now living his dream as a ski bum despite a long and difficult path to get to where he is now. Watch his story to start skiing again and how it made a positive change in his life.
