Running from 11 to 15 September, the Adventure Film Festival will bring adventure films to the mainstream by screening a five-night programme of award-winning films from the world’s top adventure film producers.
It will be the first time some of the films have been shown on the big screen when the AFF visits various Vue cinemas, including Fulham, Shepherds Bush, West End and Edinburgh.
Each of the five nights will have a different theme starting with Endurance Adventure night — documenting adventure travel with a twist, including the world’s toughest endurance races and round-the-world adventure journeys.
The Storm Force Adventure night offers top rating programming from National Geographic Channel such as Tornado Intercept. Ocean Adventure night includes groundbreaking footage from free diving with sharks to surfing the world’s largest waves.
High-Altitude Adventure night showcases the world’s top exponents of skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering and base-jumping on a high-action adventure from the peaks of the world’s highest mountains. Ultimate Adventures night features a selection of highlights from the films screened in the five-day programme; taking you around the world on an ultimate adventure.
On-the-edge Adventure night brings adventure from the world’s most remote and dangerous corners — featuring Bruce Parry, star of the recent BBC hit The Tribe. The films include jungle exploration in the unmapped interior of Papua New Guinea and the world’s greatest climbers scaling dizzying heights.
