Like every year, the Festival offers films out of competition to broaden horizons. For this 24th edition, local adventurers and athletes present: Vélocia, a documentary by journalist and mountain biker Lucy Paltz on the position of women in the world of cycling, as well as films by our downhill athlete Léo Taillefer on skis or in the airs. Paraglider Maxence Cavalade will offer a teaser of his freefly challenge. Films will be presented on the occasion of official evenings and available on the Festival website. More information on the out-of-competition program soon.


The first documentary film entirely devoted to women’s cycling, VELOCIA travels through roads and paths in the wheels of some of the best French cyclists. Who are these women who are passionate about mountain biking or road cycling, whether they are amateurs or professionals? What are the challenges, obstacles and hopes for women’s cycling in 2020?

Lucy Paltz, sports journalist and passionate about mountain biking, went to meet these passionate and talented athletes who fight every day to push the limits of sport and inspire the younger generations.

The film will be available from Monday April 19 to Thursday April 22, 2021, during the International Adventure and Discovery Film Festival. Lucy Paltz will be present during a live evening on the stage of the Val d’Isère congrès center to speak in more detail about her project. The date of his intervention will be communicated shortly.

After setting a World Record for vertical drop in speed-riding, Maxence Cavalade is training to reach the selections and compete in the World Record for freefly upside down in Chicago in 2022.

For Maxence Cavalade, when the desire to surpass oneself wins out, the idea of difficulty seems to develop into detail. Yet the obstacles are very real. Jump after jump, training after training, progress and questioning follow one another, linked by one constant: the awareness of the work to be done to achieve your goal.

For the love of winter sports, in constant search of progress and learning, Maxence takes us on a 4-year journey under his sail, to share what makes him fly towards a new dizzying challenge.

From Killy With LOVE

This is a little clip shot in early April in Val d’Isère.

A project born out of a dream that I have shared with my team for 3 years. Showcase air and board sports with shots no one has ever seen.

A brilliant team ! Implementation through meetings with mountain and film enthusiasts.

The chance to get together and have the ideal conditions to carry out the project.

An entirely homemade film with the heart and love of the mountains.
