The team behind Europe's biggest film event - the European Outdoor Film Tour - is this autumn for the first time bringing its hand-picked selection of the cream of the crop of the world's best adventure sports films to audiences across the UK. Heason Events are proud to be working with Moving Adventures who organise EOFT.
The annual programme has for the past decade played to packed-out showrooms in Germany, Austria, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, France and Slovenia. This November the feature length programme of ten high impact, adrenaline-pumping films will premiere at the Manchester Dancehouse at 8pm on 25th November followed by screenings in Glasgow (26th) and Bristol (27th), culminating at the Royal Geographic Society in London on the 28th.

The programme is a special two-hour edit of nine of the world’s best adventure sports short films and documentaries. It includes a last minute addition after French singer ZAZ climbed Mont Blanc to give a mini-concert with her guitarist and bassist singing ‘Je Veux‘ at 4,810m.
This year’s line-up also features ‘A New Perspective’ with incredible footage of David Lama, Peter Ortner and Corey Rich summiting the 6,251m Nameless Tower in Pakistan, also known as Trango Tower, part of the Karakoram mountain range. (Check out the trailer here).
The programme is packed with elite, adventure sports athletes like mountaineers Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk attempting the climb of their life in ‘The Shark’s Fin’, scaling the 9,000m granite wall of Meru in central India just six months after Renan seriously injured himself in a skiiing accident.
Other highlights include:
Red Bull’s eagerly awaited freeride mountain-bike epic ‘Where the Trail Ends’ with Darren Berrecloth and co pushing themselves to their limits.
King of the Slackline ‘Sketchy Andy’ back-flipping on a highline. It’s part insanity, part genius and totally unmissable.
Whitewater master Ben Marr literally playing with fire in Skip Armstrong’s latest, most mystical kayak short ‘Shapeshifter’.
Plus Xavier de la Rue on a mega Alaskan snowboard adventure ‘2112’; two Australians driving themselves to the edge of Arctic madness on their custom built inflatable vehicle in ‘The Crossing’; and the breath-taking ‘Birdmen’ jumping off mountains and skimming cliffs in their proximity flying wingsuits.
