This film festival on Saturday sounds great fun, wish it was in Bristol.....
For six glorious, mayhem-filled years The Adventurists' teams have been filming their mischievous, daring and often downright shocking exploits.
The first ever Film Festival will be a showcase of the very finest of these films made while thundering across continents in ridiculously unsuitable vehicles. There'll be talks from adventurers and film makers and an exclusive screening of a documentary about the Rickshaw Run and Mongol Rally. Plus of course the winning film will be announced by the judging panel and the prizes awarded and backs slapped heartily.
The mac daddy of adventure films, Benedict Allen, is giving a talk at 2.45pm. As the pioneer of filming authentic journeys for television he has made 6 TV series for the BBC, written 10 books and been described as “part of television history” by the Director General of the BBC. A proper legend of adventure.
27th March 11:30 - 6pm at Coronet Cinema, 103 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3LB
