20 books were received in our inaugural Mountain Book competition and 155 films were received in our 14th Adventure Film Makers competition. This has smashed our old record of 126! We’ve never seen so many great films. Choosing the finalists for screening at the Festival in July is going to be a tough job. The NZ entries are up, so is their quality and professionalism. It is so cool when you sit down with the judges and a film starts that you know nothing about and the film and adventure starts to unfold. Then before you know it you feel like you are there with the adventurers, sweating and anxious. Sharing in their feelings and experiences useful site. It’s why we love to put on this Festival…….
Festival Passes are on sale now, and general ticket sales start June 1st. We hope you can join us!!
