Join the Alliance for a conversation with a special speaker about the intersection of filmmaking and advocacy! We’ll hear from the Pacific Crest Trail Association and guest speaker Riordan Cicciu. We’ll also share the Alliance’s new merch!

About the webinar: PCT hiker Riordan Cicciu will speak on his upcoming hike and intention to create a film about the experience. Storytelling is a powerful tool that, when used correctly, can act as a catalyst that unites and brings people together to work towards a common goal. By utilizing the ever-growing connectedness of today’s societies, we have the opportunity to share ideas with the click of a button, and the potential to do good is greater than it has ever been. Join us to learn how filmmaking, in particular, can be used to do exactly this. Then, hear updates from the PCT association as they join the conversation.

About Riordan: Growing up in South Florida, Riordan Cicciu naturally took well to the water at a young age. His early childhood was mostly spent collecting sea shells, diving, and surfing. In college, he studied navigation and ship handling at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and obtained an unlimited license to work as a navigation officer aboard massive cargo vessels. For a brief time, he sailed around the world on enormous container ships. Ultimately, he decided to end his career as a sailor prematurely in pursuit of something a bit more adventurous. He later worked as an international outdoor adventure guide and began taking groups of tourists on luxurious yet physically demanding vacations in foreign countries. Now, using his love of travel, the great outdoors, and an overwhelming urge to experience the world, he aims to inspire others to pursue their curiosity and creativity while building a community of achievers who stand for something bigger than themselves.
