Event extras: 


  • Stumped: Climber Maureen Beck is not here to be your inspiration. She was born missing her lower left arm, but that hasn’t stopped her from going hard. “I don’t want to just be a good one-armed climber,” she says. “I want to be a good climber.”
  • Just Go: This Latvian short is inspired by the true story of a young man named Just, who lost both of his legs in a childhood accident. In this love story/action film, viewers are reminded that looks can be deceiving.
  • On Beat: This documentary short follows the lives of a deaf couple with hearing children and brings out the unexpected outlet that brings their family closer together.
