Outside Perspectives Community Sourced Film Project


People who do things differently spark our curiosity. We're on a journey to chase that spark through unexpected, personal, and experiential stories from the outdoor community. That's why we're dedicating $10,000 to fund one or more Outside Perspectives in short film form (5-10 minute length).

Watch an Outside Perspective with runner and ROMP advocate Nicole Ver Kuilen.

  2. Cotopaxi will review pitches and select several finalists. These finalists will then be asked to submit a more in-depth pitch.
  3. We'll decide which projects to support by September 18, 2023 and announce soon after.
  4. Projects must be filmed by the end of January 2024, and will be shared in the spring.
