Event Details

Connecting with the outdoors can be a lifelong opportunity and passion. These films celebrate those who sustain their sense of adventure, who are stewards of the environment even if they themselves need care, whose wisdom is expressed in wild and curious ways.

LOON
Mike Freed took the trail name of Loon, a name he's carried over thousands of trail miles. Loon is the owner of 2,000 acres of wilderness. A revelation on the Appalachian Trail provided clarity on what he should do with his land and set in motion the steps needed to preserve his land and his legacy.

THE FURTHER AWAY, THE BETTER
Ron Bartle recalls his 1958 crossing of the Sprengisandur, a vast volcanic wilderness that spans the centre of Iceland. He and three other members of the Rough Stuff Fellowship overcame hundreds of miles of lava fields and deep rivers to become the first to make the journey by bike - but were they first?

THE LONG TODAY
My Dad turned 70 this summer. So he found a 'river' on a map, repaired one of his old wood canoes, and invited his family to help him celebrate the big day. Only a few of us showed up.

BACK ON THE BIKE
In the autumn of 2020 I took my mum, who hadn't ridden a bike in over 20 years, across the breadth of North Wales on a bikepacking adventure. Having suffered family grief and battling cancer whilst bringing up me as a single parent, her confidence and adventurous spirit had taken a knock.
