The New Zealand Mountain films is set to go this Friday (2 July) with a five day-and-night programme packed with talented international and New Zealand made films, passionate adventure speakers, workshops, adventure trade show and art exhibition
Festival goers can view a diverse mix of over 50 films featuring the most daring, the most exhilarating, to adrenaline fueled escapades, taming nature to discovering new worlds. With multiple three to four hour sessions daily, with some including a speaker, the festival will inspire and entertain all age groups, friends and families and there are tickets still available for all sessions.
The festival will kick off Friday with live music from local musicians Hound Lounge, viewing of the art exhibition and trade show. This will be followed by awards and previews of the festival films and then viewing of several thrilling films including the Winner of Best New Zealand Made Film, Into Perpetual Ice.
A highlight for the festival is a presentation from Canadian Will Gadd, a fanatical ice climber, paraglider and kayaker, titled “Ice, rock, rivers, clouds and grizzly bears”. His Saturday night talk will feature pictures, videos, comics, profanity and attempted profundity, high and low humor, generally good entertainment for an hour; followed by four films including the NZMFF’s Grand Prize winner; Mount St.Elias.
Other speakers include Adrian Lang from Australia who climbed a 1000m rock face in Pakistan with Wanaka climbers Bruce Dowrick, Jon Sedon and Scott Standen. He will talk on Sunday night at 8pm and the following night at the same time is Martin Jones from Christchurch who is talking on skiing in Northern India. Kylie Wakelin rounds out the four keynote speakers and will talk on Tuesday night about her recent trip to become the first New Zealand woman to ski to the South Pole (900km). 
The interactive workshops will educate the mind and relax the body: Featuring a free community avalanche awareness course with Peter Bilous, a yoga session with Rosie Cox, a digital film making workshop with award winning film maker Corrie Francis, a ski/snowboard tuning workshop, or listen in on a climbing literature reading by Christchurch writer Paul Hersey.
“The full to the brim programme features some truly spectacular films this year, the entrants seem to have stepped up a level which made the judging that much harder,” said festival director Mark Sedon. “There is hot demand for the 5 day Festival Passes as usual, and there will be ample single session tickets sold from the venue, the Lake Wanaka Centre at 89 Ardmore St, from 4pm Friday and throughout the festival. Tickets cost between $15 and $25.
The New Zealand Mountain Film Festival runs from 2 to 6 July.
