Beyond Backcountry

The “Beyond Backcountry” series provides a deeper dive into the films that make up the Backcountry Film Festival seasonal line-up. We chat with filmmakers, athletes, backyard adventurers, and the folks that came together to make these human-powered stories happen to get a glimpse further into their worlds.

In the first episode, Backcountry Film Festival Manager, Melinda Quick, catches up with “A Climb for Equality” film team, all-around athletic badasses, and quarantined sweethearts, Rob Lea and Caroline Gleich. We chat about quarantine training, gender equality, climate, imperfection, dealing with negativity and preconceptions on social media, and the importance of falling down. Check it out at the video above and let us know what questions you have for Caroline and Rob!
