Film is a medium in which a filmmaker communicates with his or her viewers. In ultrarunning films, filmmakers may communicate glimpses of the training, lifestyle, and the incredible training scenery of our favorite athletes. These films can be made independently but often shoe, gear, and media companies help foot the bill and promote sponsored athletes along with ultrarunning in general. Film can also bring a unique element of race coverage and depth to the sport. Films like Unbreakable allow us to witness the front action of the 2010 Western States 100 race with some race history to boot. To the viewers, films offer insight and inspiration.
