What is it?
The 2021 Mountain Film Festival National Tour is coming to Nelson. Enjoy this award winning selection of short and long films.
Spellbound (5 mins) Director Richard Sidey, NZ. Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping.
Mount Logan (14 minutes) Director Alex Marchesseau, France, subtitles. A journey to climb Mount Logan 5959m in Canada, then ski, snowboard and monoski down the 3,800 metre ridge over 48 days and 700km.
Katherine’s Marathon (26 mins) Director Nicolas Falquet, France, subtitles. Katherine was the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route (NZ grade 35) and she decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps, with Jungfrau Marathon, a route with a radically different style.
Made in Aotearoa (37 mins) Directors Andy Deere and Ryan Heron, NZ. Young up-and-coming surfer Kehu Butler shows us his favourite spots around NZ as we learn about his family and deep connections to friends and ocean. This is the first time an NZ film has won this award, EPIC!
K2: Impossible Descent – FULL MOVIE (66 mins) Director Steve Robillard, Austria, some subtitles. In 2018 a Polish ski mountaineer clicked into his bindings at an altitude of 8,611m to make history. Follow Andrzej Bargiel’s expedition as he attempts to ski the most dangerous mountain on earth; K2.
