The full film line-up is coming soon. Programme highlights include:
THE FROZEN ROAD Yorkshireman Ben Page is embarking on a solo bikepacking journey in the Canadian Arctic. He starts with romantic visions of perfect solitude, but as the latitude increases and the mercury falls below -30C, he discovers what it truly means to travel alone in this great emptiness.
INTO TWIN GALAXIES – A GREENLAND EPIC Top adventurers Ben Stookesberry, Sarah McNair-Landry and Erik Boomer are on an extreme mission in Greenland. Using kite skis, the trio tow their white-water kayaks 1,000km over the Greenland Ice Cap to reach the northernmost river ever paddled – and then the challenge gets even tougher. With spectacular cinematography, remote wilderness and a large amount of suffering, this film shows what it’s like to be far out of your comfort zone.
DREAMWALKERS – THE FAROES PROJECT In the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands are renowned for wild weather and swirling winds – not ideal when you’re perched on a wire between towering sea cliffs. This doesn’t deter four Dutch friends attempting to be the first people to highline in these desolate islands.
