A collection of New Zealand made mountain films - brought to you by the combined forces of the Vic Uni Tramping Club, Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club, and of course the New Zealand Mountain Film and Book Festival!
Atlas: into the Mountains (4 mins), Director: Braydon Moloney, NZ.
A sublime journey into Morocco's spectacular Atlas Mountains, from the arid Anti-Atlas plateau, through the cedar forests of the Middle Atlas, to the snowy passes of the High Atlas.
Dasler Pinnacles (10 mins), Director: Joe Wright, NZ.
A short film about a few local Wanaka folk playing in their amazing back yard. While bike-packing the Hopkins valley they saw a pointy-looking peak from their camp.... Then they decided to head back to what turned out to be the Dasler Pinnacle. A good dose of exposure, solitude, sub-zero temperatures, and epic New Zealand goodness...
Upland Dreams (12 mins), Director: Ross Mackay, NZ.
Josh Clark and Jono Carr stumble upon an unlikely find in a cave while hunting in the North Routeburn Valley. It just so happens that one of NZ's premier backcountry couloirs is directly across the valley from the cave. Josh comes back after 17 years to attempt the descent and complete his part of this cool little story.
Fluid Trails (12 mins), Director: Dylan Gerschwitz, NZ, World premiere.
Follow a three-person team on an 11-day loop of the second largest national park in NZ. Diverse landscapes, traversed by bike and boat.
The Breath Connection (15 mins), Director: Aliscia Young, NZ.
A portrait of freediver Kathryn Nevatt, former World Champion and current New Zealand record holder in all freediving disciplines. Filmed through the distinctive Central Otago seasons, the film reflects Kathryn's philosophy and gives insight into the mind of a freediver.
A Winter Affair (26 mins), Producer: Janina Kuzma, NZ.
Janina Kuzma and Anna Smoothy cross NZ’s Southern Alps over the Main Divide from East to West starting at the Liebigs. They are confronted with challenging terrain and weather conditions, and a last-minute change to their plans prepares the team to exit out on a different route.
ICEolation (29 mins), Directors: Sophie Ballagh & Ewan Blyth, NZ.
Two people, two weeks, two kayaks. A journey beyond wilderness, via sea kayak, to connect with a land of ice and penguins. Two paddlers with adventurous spirits undertake a self-supported sea kayak expedition in Antarctica.
