Director's Statement

The response to 35 was overwhelming. We received emails from people who were inspired to try their own birthday challenge. Friends tagged friends on Facebook. We had requests for the script. And it won the Best Short Mountain Film at the 2013 Banff Mountain Film Festival and has screened at dozens of film festivals worldwide.

35 was part of a series of short films we created for Arc’teryx. In the outdoor community, it’s said that there are three types of fun. It’s always intrigued us how this explanation sums up our relationships with outdoor passions. It concisely conveys the laughter, awe, inspiration and struggle that we seek and experience. These short films feature cinematic eye‐candy as well as the deeper storytelling roots that we are known for.

Quotes

“In just five short minutes, this inspiring film captured the hearts of all the jury members and left us all grinning. One man's personal journey of fulfilling a climbing goal for his 35th birthday teaches us so eloquently about gratitude, following our dreams, how the ordinary can be amazing, and the importance of not missing the magic in life. Derek's story, conveyed in such a beautifully crafted visual style, was so inspiring, that after seeing this film, you just can't wait to get out there and write your own.” - Maggie Rhodes, BMFF Jury, Banff Centre
