I felt mis-led by this - I wanted to see the Wideboys film, but when it was shown at Lancaster, it just seemed to be a very short 'teaser' and not the full length film. If this is the case, there's no mention of it on any publicity material I saw.
I was under the impression that the Wideboyz film would be shown as well when I booked my tickets for next week's screening in Sheffield. If it is just a teaser then I find it very misleading as well. It certainly seems to be advertised as if it is the full film.
In reply to MarisP: I think the proper wideboys film is actually being shown in the Kendal mountain fest. I would certainly rather see all of it than some of the bits on reel rock but I guess they wanted to have a bit of all types of climbing in it rather than just 2 crazy Brits.
