The event  is the brainchild of Jonny Copp who sketched out the vision of a community based, mission oriented, outdoor adventure film festival that tied indie film with art and activism. Therefore, he created the film festival by bringing together adventurers, artists, filmmakers and activists who believed in the power of the story and the narrative of adventure to change and challenge the world we live in. Over the next six years, the film festival would grow to became an international success with shows in Chile, France, and across the US and for the first time in Nepal. Apart from the screenings, the festival also included various outdoor activities such as 2 on 2 basketball, BMX stunts, Zip-line, horizontal Bungy, rope climbing and horse riding among others.
