Come and see the "Award Winning Selection" of adventure films, from the NZ Mountain Film & Book Festival 2017.

Here are the films:
Waiau-toa Odyssey - 13 mins, Director: Simon Waterhouse, NZ. Best NZ Film.
Five adventurers set off on a six-day, 300km unsupported journey. By combining new bike-packing and pack-rafting technology, they link together whitewater rivers and backcountry tracks through some of NZ's under-appreciated wilderness areas.

Give Me Five - 11 mins, Director: Arnaud Longobardi, France, subtitles. Best Short Film.
The film is the story behind an attempt at formation flight between a speed-wing and two wingsuits pilots.

Into Twin Galaxies - A Greenland Epic - 52 mins, Director: Jochen Schmoll, Germany. Grand Prize Winner.
Three adventurers embark on an insane kayaking mission in Greenland. With kite skis, they tow their whitewater kayaks over 1000 kilometres of the Greenland Ice Cap to reach the most northern river ever paddled.

Link Sar West - 31 mins, Director: Jon Griffith, UK. Best Film On Climbing.
Link Sar in Pakistan was an obsession for UK alpinist and photographer Jonathan Griffith. He made three attempts on the peak before reaching the west summit on his forth try. Near disastrous circumstances, with riveting video and breathtaking cinematography.

Mountains of Heaven - 23 mins, Director: Jenny Tough, Scotland. Runner Up for Best Film On Adventurous Sports & Lifestyles.
Solo adventurer and endurance runner Jenny Tough attempts to run across Kyrgyzstan, carrying everything she needs to survive on her back and using ancient nomad trails carved into the imposing Tien Shan mountains.

The screening will be at 6.30pm (doors open at 6:00pm)
Tickets $10 adults, $5 students, primary students free with adult.
Tickets available at the Twizel Promotions & Development Association office or door sales on the night.
