The Pretty Strong online Canadian Premiere hosted by VIMFF

Over the past few weeks, the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival’s crew have been searching for the best way to bring Never Not Collective’s incredible film Pretty Strong to our viewers.

This film was created by an all-women production team and is a climbing tale about women, by women and for everyone. We’re happy to announce that on Friday April 17, VIMFF will host the Pretty Strong show online across Canada. And before the film starts, we’ll also share a short clip from the filmmakers.

Synopsis

From 5.13 big walls in Yosemite to 5.14 sport climbs in Mexico to V14 boulder problems in Colorado, Pretty Strong follows eight of the world’s strongest female climbers as they explore new climbing areas, send hard projects, and push the boundaries of the sport and themselves. Putting badass ladies front and center, this isn’t a film about gender imbalance, or the sexualization of women, or what it’s like to have your period at the crag.

This is a film about some of the best climbers in the world—some you know, some you don’t—doing what they do best: crushing hard rock climbs. Your palms will sweat from the dizzying heights, your imagination will expand with the breathtaking landscapes, and your motivation will soar from the determination and try-hard of these strong women. The climbers featured include Nina Williams, Katie Lambert, Daila Ojeda, Hazel Findlay, and more.

Created by the all-women production team Never Not Collective, Pretty Strong is a climbing film about women, by women, and for everyone.
