Unleash your adventurous side…
Join us for an evening of film and talks celebrating adventure from some of the most spectacular places on earth, brought to you by the team behind Kendal Mountain Festival.
You’ll be guided through a curation of stories from across the globe, told by a unique collection of travellers, athletes, activists and creatives. Through culturally rich, cinematically beautiful and thought provoking films we’ll ask; what is possible in a changing world, what is beautiful, what is wild and what defines adventure?
The evening will be hosted by the Kendal Mountain Presenting Team, as well as on-screen interviews with the filmmakers themselves. We will also welcome Matt Pycroft, a highly experienced filmmaker and photographer who specialises in working in remote and hostile environments. He has a passion for seeking out untold stories and has worked as both director and principal photographer on numerous world-class expeditions to places such as Greenland, Pakistan and Alaska through to extensive work for NGOs in Sub-Saharan Africa. Matt co-founded Coldhouse with the idea of creating a company of like-minded individuals that produce authentic, narrative led content in the outdoors.
Kendal Mountain Festival is the ultimate social gathering for outdoor enthusiasts – with a world-class programme of films and talks from international adventurers taking place on the edge of the Lake District each year.

Kendal Mountain Tour 2022 programme
From climbing the world’s most challenging peaks to fearless surfing in Ireland and wingsuit BASE jumping in New Zealand. These are this years Tour films…
The Process directed by Matt Pycroft
Tom Randall is a world class crack climber. He is also a terrible runner, which is why his latest challenge seems like an odd choice. He decided to link up two of the Lake District’s biggest and toughest endurance challenges, the Bob Graham Round and The Classic Rock challenge into one hellish 24 hour mad dash. A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.
Ebb and Flow directed by Alice Ward
A female led production featuring the surf community on the west coast of Ireland and shining a spotlight on its creative community. Enjoy the mystical relationship these women have with the power and magnitude of the Atlantic Oceanâs surf.
ASCEND: Reframing Disability in the Outdoors directed by Faith E. Briggs
Vasu is not seeking to inspire you to feel good. His trauma doesn’t exist solely to benefit the education of others. He is seeking to inspire you to move mountains. To take action. Skiing is the method, but the real mountains are the ‘isms’ that fail to support Disabled communities, communities of colour and so many others for whom access has not been a right.
If You Give a Beach a Bottle directed by Max Romey
Inspired by a picture book, Max Romey heads to a remote beach on Alaska’s coastline in search of marine debris. What he finds is a different story altogether.
Spellbound directed by Richard Sidey
Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping, as David Walden and friends venture into the mountains around his home in New Zealand.
Stormskater directed by Guen Murroni
Meet Stormskater, a London based roller-skater who started skating by picking up tips and techniques from other skaters in different spots in the city. She gives us insight into the increasingly popular sport, its community, appropriation, ownership, authenticity and the fundamental need for space.
Link Sar directed by Graham Zimmerman
Zimmerman’s climb of one of the world’s most challenging unclimbed peaks in the mountains of Pakistan – resulting in a Piolet D’Or award.
Girls Gotta Eat Dirt directed by Elliot Wilkinson-Ray
The story of three best friends and riding partners. A mix of lighthearted fun moments with high alpine MTB action.
The Farmer directed by Michael James Brown
