The 2017 Adventure Film Festival is almost upon us and as always the guys have curated a belting list of films that’ll without doubt have you packing your bags.
Product of the minds of adventure power couple Austin Vince – known for his dedication to motorbike overalls – and Lois Pryce, the festival is their homage to all things DIY adventure. If you know not of these two, hit the links above and get acquainted.
With the festival looming and preparations well underway, amidst a ridiculously busy schedule of country hopping, we caught up with Lois to shed a little light on all things ATFF.
What’s the festival mission?
To champion real-life adventure: unsponsored, DIY trips made without huge budgets or loads of gear. But also to show how independent, low-impact travel can create unity and understanding on a grass-roots level among different cultures. These are the defining features of our own adventures and we are very keen to encourage both aspects.
To someone who’s never heard of ATFF, how would you describe it?
It’s a super-friendly, totally unique celebration of independent DIY adventure travel in all forms. It takes the form of a music festival in that everyone camps in the fields and there are bonfires, outdoor activities and live music – with a fabulous programme of 20+ adventure films, speakers and workshops all happening simultaneously in the indoor spaces.
