Adventure Film Festival 09
It’s not often that you’ll find such localized events on here, but the Adventure Film Festival is worth mentioning for all of us out there that share common ideals in living a lifestyle that embraces and embodies adventure. Specifically this year (the festival’s fifth), the Adventure Film Festival hits close to home: on Friday evening, Sender Films will premiere “Point of No Return,” the film project of Jonny Copp, Micah Dash and Wade Johnson during their fateful expedition on China’s Mt. Edgar in May. Jonny was the founder and festival director of Adventure Film, and an active and supportive member of the AAC climbing community.
Before the film begins, the AAC and all local climbers present will stop to recognize and thank the six men who quickly and selflessly traveled to China to assist in the search effort for their friends and colleagues: Eric Decaria, Mick Folari, Nick Martino, Nick Rosen, Steve Su and Pete Takeda. Their actions exemplified traits we hold dear in climbing and proudly bore witness to the brotherhood of the rope. Please join us in expressing our appreciation to our fellow climbers and friends.
If you’re around, the event is worth your time. More information on the Festival:
Every year the international Adventure Film selection committee chooses over thirty new films from approximately two hundred entries from around the world. Awards Winners in nearly a dozen categories are selected, ranging from “Extreme Sport” to “Activism through Adventure.” Adventure Film, as it’s known, covers risks, mighty and absurd, the unknown and those experiences that bring us to the edges of our seats with our hands over our eyes or our fists in the air. We believe in the power of the story, especially the narratives of adventure and awakening, to change and challenge the world we live in.
