Looking for a bit of trail-focused inspiration at the moment? Look no further than the Forward Motion Festival. From April 17th through the 24th, the producers of the Trail Running Film Festival will host a series of online panels and events with race directors, athletes, and filmmakers (see the schedule of events) culminating with a two-hour, live-streamed event featuring eight films (see the lineup), including a few premiers, on Saturday, April 24th starting at 5:30 p.m. PDT. If you can’t join the main event live, you can watch it through May 2nd. Order your tickets now.

The organization also invites you to donate toward its diversity, equity, and inclusion grant for filmmakers.
