BODIES LIKE OCEANS
A dreamy portrait of photographer Shoog McDaniel, a self-described queer fat southern freak, whose work with fat bodies in nature transgresses reality. From mountain-fed waterfalls to the clear blue and weightless world under the surface of a natural spring, this film is about finding beauty in new places.
Winner: Best Short Film Award
Directed: Kat Cory / 2019 / US / 13 min
REWILDING A MOUNTAIN
The sagebrush sea is a landscape of beauty and wildlife, yet desertification and extractive industries threaten this basin. But at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge, new aspen explode alongside thriving creeks, birds travel thousands of miles to nest here and the endangered sage grouse is recovering. This film challenges a core identity of the West and asks: what happened here?
Winner: Best Conservation Award for Branded Content
Director: Trip Jennings / 2019 / US / 27 min
ROCKY INTERTIDAL ZONES
A six year old boy explores the rocky intertidal zones of the Oregon Coast, bringing along prehistoric creatures which inspire musings about ancient and present day life.
Director: Irene Tejaratchi Hess / 2019 / US / 3 min
OUR TRAILS TOO
In Oregon, one of the whitest states in the USA, a queer African American woman disrupts the outdoor adventurer stereotype.
Director: Liz Haan / 2019 / US / 31 min
Giants tells the story of a neighborhood’s response to Everett Custom Homes, a Portland developer who purchases a property and expresses the intent to cut down the three giant sequoias on the site. The film brings a fresh look into local activism and highlights the importance of community organizing.
Director: Luz Carasa / 2019 / US / 27 min
