The Saturday afternoon speaker is poet, writer and outdoor enthusiast, Helen Mort. Helen has a particular interest in mountaineering and womanhood, the subjects of her latest title “A Line Above the Sky”

Returning to the Dundee Mountain Film Festival after a number of years, is the ever popular Alan Hinkes. Alan will enthuse about his  adventures & extreme exploits towards becoming the first Briton to summit all fourteen 8000 metre peaks.

We also have an art exhibition at the Bonar Hall during the festival, and one of our artists is Elizabeth Drysdale Kay. See the Exhibition page for more details. Details on a second artist to follow.
