Learn how to make your own adventure films
The highly acclaimed Kendal Mountain Festival Adventure Film Academy is back this July for it’s 8th year, and gives you the chance to work with some top professionals who have worked on BAFTA and EMMY winning adventure films including Touching the Void.
The popular workshops, which run from 21st to 25th July, offer four sessions of various aspects of film making and editing, followed by a 48 hour film marathon during the Festival week.
Previous participants have gone on to have their films screened BBC One, the Banff, Telluride and Trento Film Festivals and one film, No Cycling has received 678,000 views on YouTube.
Amongst the budding film makers are film students who want to learn new skills, as well as adventurers, mountaineers and extreme sports enthusiasts who want to learn how to record their exploits and make a broadcast quality films. 18% of those who have made a film short in AFA have even gone on to work in the film industry.
This year there’s also a special opportunity to win a paid internship with Atlantic Productions, the company behind The Wildest Dream, an acclaimed film about George Mallory and his final, fateful climb on Everest.
The company will pick their intern from the intake of this year’s film academy, and are looking for someone who shows the right aptitude and commitment during the course to gain a foothold in the exciting world of adventure filmmaking.
So what are you waiting for? Register by July 16th and this could be the year you see your name up in lights…
