Become What You Dream Seventh Annual Adventure Film Festival
Behold the idealized beauty, carved by unbridled passion, at the seventh annual Adventure Film Festival premiere November 3-5, 2011 in Boulder, Colorado. Through the craftsmanship of award-winning filmmakers, extreme athletes, and adventurers, take a rite of passage to live out your deepest desires in nature’s most mysterious and enchanting kingdoms. Freedive 101 meters into the world’s deepest blue hole. Summit an 8000 meter peak in Pakistan’s bitter winter. Paddle the Congo’s unnavigated Lukuga River. Climb golden granite boulders surrounded by snowy Himalayan peaks. Fool around on Norway’s sea ice. Pedal a seatless unicycle off the beaten path in Alaska. Become a warrior, dancer, healer, storyteller. Become what you dream.
