The Speaker

ANNA MCNUFF

Anna is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker who recently completed an incredible adventure running the distance of 100 marathons through Britain completely barefoot! Named by The Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Anna has a capacity for feats of exceptional endurance, most of them solo, having previously run self-supported along New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa Trail. Anna will join us on stage to share first-hand her inspirations, her challenges and how she overcomes them in an open and honest way.

The Films

CAMEL FINDS WATER

Trevor found the hull of an abandoned fishing boat in a field. He brought it home and built it back to a sea-worthy state over the course of a summer. Then, he took it on its maiden voyage to British Columbia in search of waves.

BOYS FROM THE BACK OF BEYOND

They say it takes a village to raise a child... But it takes an extraordinary village to raise a pair of Olympians. In 2016 brothers Gary and Paul O'Donovan became the world's unlikeliest Olympic heroes when they won Ireland's first ever rowing medal. Hailing from tiny Skibeereen, west Cork, this is the uplifting and comedic underdog story of how a rural community took on the elite sport of rowing.

ULTRA ADDICT

In 2018, Courtney Dauwalter battled for two days and 205 miles on the steep, dry Tahoe Rim Trail. Lack of sleep, race mishaps and a relentless competitor pursued her as she was pushing her limits, running towards the overall victory. You can learn a lot about yourself when a race goes well, but you can learn even more when it all goes sideways.

SKETCHING THE ALPS

Running through the Alps it is important to stop and smell the roses... or at least sketch them

DEEP WATER

A captivating exploration of fear, mentorship, and deep water soloing in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam with psicobloc pioneer Tim Emmett and competition climber Kyra Condie.

TURN OF MIND

“Going up on a splitboard, slow by nature, you start to gaze around. With not much to do, your mind wanders freely.” Intrigued by a deep connection with nature, Patagonia ambassador Nicholas Wolken spent time in the Swiss mountains with his splitboard, good friends and an open mind. He shares his story in the film: Turn of Mind.

LIFE OF PIE

'Pizza & Bikes can fix anything'.

Life of Pie tells the story of Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller, two mountain bikers on a mission to reshape their conservative community through advocacy —and pizza.
