The Adventure Travel Film Festival 2011

Film_Festivel_2011The Adventure Travel Film Festival is the brainchild of film-maker Austin Vince and travel author Lois Pryce. Here’s how it all came about…

‘Over the last ten years or so they have been sent tons of fantastic travel films from all over the world by largely unknown film-makers. They came from all over the globe and covered every form of transport – boats, bicycles, buses, motorcycles, 4×4s and even hitch-hiking and train-hopping. The ‘adventure travel’ shows we saw on TV, although polished and professional, were nothing in comparison to the real-life dramas that were arriving in our letterbox.

As time passed they gradually realised that they were accruing a fairly extensive and possibly, definitive, collection of adventure travel films. It occurred to them that this had to be the tip of an iceberg. Once they started searching actively, films came to the surface that were absolutely mind-blowing. They were amazed, and excited, that adventures of this quality, old and new, were essentially unknown by the public.

There mission is to change all that.

Film festivals don’t usually have manifestos – so here’s ours!

1.To showcase the best independent adventure travel films ever made
2.To guarantee a platform for future adventure film-makers
3.To bring together the adventure travel community
4.We know that making a good film isn’t difficult – we will show you how
5.To have loads of fun while doing all the above!

Film festivals are usually based around cinema screens in cities. In the spirit of the event, the Adventure Travel Film Festival is based around two days of camping and good times in beautiful countryside.
