and the plains of Patagonia all from the comfort (and safety) of their cinema seats.
The eleven films, which form part of the world tour, will be shown at Ster Kinekor
cinemas in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria. Featuring
the best mountain films and exceptional filmmaking talent from around the globe, the
festival offers something for everyone with a mix of topics and cinematic styles that
will both inspire and entertain.
All types of outdoor adventure such as surfing and skiing, base-jumping and
bouldering, rowing and trail running, are beautifully captured in the films. They also
range in duration from the heart-warming and humorous 9-minute Ace and the
Desert Dog and 5-minute art piece that is Metronomic, to the 27-minute
inspirational documentary Young Guns, which will keep audiences of all ages
motivated to gear up and get out.
Whats more, attendees will get to see this years winning submission from the annual
