The New Zealand Mountain Film Festival is coming to Auckland! A one-off chance to see a selection of unforgettable mountain, adventure and adrenalin movies and a blissful night out for adventurers, climbers and kayakers; actual or armchair.
Kiwi blokes Jo and Sean travel to the Patagonian Ice Cap in search of a lost tower. It remains lost, but the high winds and epic journey they undertake makes for a great movie. 'Kayaking in the Nevis' has got some of the best white water kayaking footage we’ve seen. Prepare to watch this one open mouthed! Acopan Tepui and Azazel are just epic, insightful, funny, inspiring climbing films of big walls and bigger adventures in hugely photogenic, far flung places.
Tickets by advance purchase only - no door sales.
