The fifth Hope Valley Adventure Film Festival takes place on Saturday at Hope Valley College.
Twenty five of the best UK adventure films will be showcased, including the award-winning ‘Distilled’, which explores Scottish winter climbing and profiles life in the mountains.
Another will be Ella Kirkpatrick’s El Capitan film ‘My Life, Big Climb’, a made-for-TV film telling the story of the 13-year-old’s plan to scale the 3,000ft wall in California’s Yosemite Valley. Accompanying the film will be a Q&A session.
The festival, which raises funds for the college, will also feature family activities such as film-making and bouldering competitions, indoor caving, slacklines and mountain bike time trails.
Admission is £10 for adults and £5 for under-18s (under-fives free).
Acclaimed author and mountaineer Andy Cave will present an evening lecture on his life story ‘From Miner to Mountaineer, A Life on the Edge’, and wild stories from his recent Patagonian adventures. Tickets for this are £7.50.
