/ Films at Kendal Mountain Film
It will be part of the various film sessions although it isn't clear from the web site when the various sessions are scheduled.
I suspect if you buy an all day film pass then you will have access to a session showing 'A Fine Line'.
It might be worth giving them a ring though to check - http://www.mountainfest.co.uk/contact
Enjoy the Festival
This is a far cry from the colour-coded timeline they provided last year if I remember rightly, but you can check times for each session here
I cant understand the decision not to ticket things individually, if somebody only wants to see one film on a day they have to drop £19.50 on a pass, seems a weird way to go, easier to manage for them no doubt but could easily end up with empty venues.
Last year from memory it was pretty much packed throughout the weekend.
Just got back from a great couple of days at Kendal. "A fine line" was good, hope you enjoyed it. Couple of highlights for me were the "Petit Bus Rouge" and the one about the chap who cycled then soloed some big mountain in the old USSR.
The Sensei was a delight, both wide boyz films were fantastic, lots of quality around.
The short version of the film about the lady who was travelling round the world, but the film only featured her kayaking across to france, was dreadful, the narration would have been better suited to a kids programme and I really felt like they made a big deal of 3 6 hour shifts in a kayak.
Leo Holding climbing in antarctica was pretty, but not hugely exciting. Distilled was a well made, nice biography with some great scottish climbing shots.
Overall I think the standard of entries was better than last year, but having 3 films from the same french director, Petzl rock trip, Rocking Cuba, Silbergia all of a similar style was poor selection, especially as the rock trip and Silbergia were terrible films with hugely annoying editing, special effects which were rubbish, and some of the worst music I have ever heard.
Didn't get to see mountaineering, as it was in the Studio today and therefore filled up. What a shame they didn't put it on in the cinema, screen 2, which was half empty with the snow films.
The long one was a similar standard but, well, longer.
My take was that I didn't see any this year that were quite as bad as a couple I had a big problem with last year. However fewer ones stood out to me as genuinely excellent this year. Last year though there were several "adventure & exploration" ones that I thought were absolutely outstanding, and nothing quite hit that high mark for me this year. I also wasn't very impressed with the number of flagrant adverts this year, several in the water session, and the Petzl ones felt like they were just trying to sell a brand, without much of an interesting story to tell.
That said, I very much enjoyed The Sensei and Distilled, and there were some rather nice ones in the cultural session too - glad we caught that in the last slot of the day. Oh, and the everest ones were thought provoking.
In reply to ablackett:
Not pictured: a massive pile of weed. Or at least that was R's verdict on it.
Pity, there were some good ones in there.
