Here We Stand

Directed by Chris Cresci (USA, 2020, 11 min.) Digital.

In 2018, Save the Redwoods League purchased a magical 700-acre stand of old-growth redwoods in Sonoma County. Conservation has long been about keeping people out of places, but with help from communities of color, the organization reimagines its role in a diverse, inclusive California.

Where I Belong

Directed by Chris Cresci (USA, 2020, 9 Min.) Digital.

Chris Hill, an angler and environmental lobbyist, has long found solace in the outdoors, and yet she didn’t see people like herself out there until recently. Through Instagram and other social media platforms, she says, underrepresented voices are creating a new kind of conservation movement. “People who are of marginalized communities have just banded together and said, ‘we’re gonna do it ourselves, we’re gonna create space in the outdoors for people who look like us.’”

Slim Pickins

Directed by Justin M. Jeffers. (USA, 2021, 16 min.) Digital.

This film tells the story of Slim Pickins Outfitters, the nation’s first Black-owned outdoor gear shop, and its owners, Jahmicah and Heather Dawes. Get an inside look at the inspiration behind the store, the vital energy and spirit they bring to Stephenville, Texas, and the positive impact within the outdoor industry.


Directed by Tim Kressin (USA, 2021,12 min.) Digital.

Lesford Duncan and Outdoor Outreach strive to connect youth with the transformative power of the outdoors and work to foster our industry’s next generation of leaders and advocates.

The Crown

Directed by Jacob McNeill and Steve Flood (USA, 2020, 9 min.) Digital.

When Will “Akuna” Robinson completed the Triple Crown of Hiking—the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail—he gained entry into an elite group of hikers who complete all three. He also became the first African American man on record to achieve the 8,000-mile feat. Robinson now aims to inspire other people of color to get out on the trails by crushing miles and spreading good vibes.
