In anticipation of the upcoming Roxbury International Film Festival, see a selection of short films about being Black outdoors. This year’s RoxFilm festival, which celebrates its 25th anniversary, runs from June 20 through 28, 2023.

Black Ice
Directed by Peter Mortimer and Zachary Barr (USA, 2020, 45 min.).

Members of an inner-city Memphis climbing gym travel to the frozen wilds of Montana to experience ice climbing with the help of mentors Manoah Ainuu, Conrad Anker, and Fred Campbell.

Mardi in the Whites
Directed by Paula Champagne (USA, 2021 11 min.).

Mardi and the Whites is a peek into Mardi’s relationship with the White Mountains in New Hampshire, the great outdoors, and the community that surrounds them. Above all, it’s a celebration of Black liberation in the wild.

Wood Hood
Directed by Alex Cullen (USA, 2022, 16 min.).

DeVaughn is a 15-year-old kid from New York City who loves skateboarding and craves a quiet place to escape the chaos of his home, the city, and bullies who steal from him. He gets his opportunity on a weekend-long group camping trip with a BIPOC-led mentorship program that teaches leadership, brotherhood, and inclusion in the outdoors. As Wood Hood weaves between the city and the woods, DeVaughn experiences the joy and growth that comes with finally finding a quiet place.
