Adventure Film Festival Celebrates Five Years

by Tom Markiewicz on November 6, 2008

Entering its fifth year, the 2008 Adventure Film Festival starts today and ends November 11 in Boulder, Colorado. Focusing on all types of adventure, the festival bills itself as an international venue for independent films.

“I’ve been exposed to an incredible world of adventure through years of expeditions and work in outdoor media,” said founder Jonny Copp, a photographer, writer and filmmaker whose work has appeared in Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Climbing Magazine and Men’s Journal. “We created this film festival because there is powerful medicine within these stories. … (They) have the power to change us and change the world.”

Here are the festival’s “official selections” and the major award winners this year:

  • People??s Choice – Living With Grizzlies by Jeff Turner
  • Best Cultural Documentary – Recycled Life by Leslie Iwerks and Mike Glad
  • Best Action Film – Seasons by The Collective
  • Best Climbing Film – The Sharp End by Sender Films
  • Activism Through Adventure – Sharkwater by Rob Stewart
  • Best Surfing Film – Sliding Liberia by Britton Caillouette & Nicholai Lidow
  • Intrepid Travel Award – A Map For Saturday by Brook Silva-Braga
  • Best Whitewater Film – Source by Young Gun Productions
  • Make Your Own Legends Award – Klunkerz by Billy Savage

Unfortunately, I’m out of town this weekend and will not be able to provide a review. If anyone attends, please leave a comment and let us know how the festival went.

    I’m trying to start up a small blog, primarily to hold a few short stories I’ve written and get feedback, but also for various other blog-type activities. This won’t do me any good if I can’t get my words where people can read them.. . Blogspot is preferred, but anything allowing advertising would be fine. I might want to monetise eventually, and wordpress seems to discourage that, as I understand their terms of use..

    Howdy, I do believe your blog could be having browser compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic blog!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    It seems there are websites and blogs devoted to many activities, such tv, music, lives of celebrities, etc.. . But I really cannot find websites and blogs devoted to reading, unfortunately an afterthought when it comes to pastimes.. . Anyone know some really popular and great ones? Classic and current literature are both cool with me, since I read both.. . Thanks so much! =o).

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    A large percentage of of what you assert is astonishingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. Nonetheless there is actually 1 issue I am not really too comfortable with so while I try to reconcile that with the main theme of your point, allow me observe exactly what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.
