Some of the featured films include: 
Leo & Chester tells the story of disillusioned rock-and-roller, Leo Downey, who leaves his life in California behind and becomes a first-generation buffalo rancher. To gain the acceptance of an animal four times stronger than an ox and faster than a horse, he must face his fears and embrace the herd’s gift. Soundscape features Erik Weihenmayer, a global adventure athlete and author who is fully blind, as he ascends a massive alpine rock face deep in the Sierra Nevada. Using expert camera work and emotive, novel animation to bring to life a concept by adaptive climbing pioneer Timmy O’Neill, the film is a surprising and soulful adventure in echolocation, touch and imagination. Tear Down the City follows mountain biker Xavier Massicotte tear around the streets, stairs, parks and subways of Montreal in a fast-paced, flowy adventure.
