Thursday evening (Abertay University) Tickets £10- Anke Addy discusses and displays her mesmerising photographic response to Nan Shepherd’s classic text, The Living Mountain. After a short break, Erlend Clouston, former Guardian journalist and long-time friend of Nan, takes a sideways look at her life, influences, and remarkable belated celebrity. Both Anke and Erlend will answer questions afterwards.
Friday evening (Bonar Hall) Tickets £12- Seven great films from the Banff World Tour followed by a presentation by our National Treasure Cameron McNeish, makes for an unmissable Friday evening of entertainment and storytelling.
Saturday Morning (Bonar Hall) Tickets £6 – We start off with some amazing Scottish films, including some from local film makers who will be here to introduce their work. After the interval we have a remarkable young climber, Uisdean Hawthorn to tell us about his latest exploits including the recent incredible Skye Cuillin Winter Traverse in a ridiculous record time. Uisdean’s talk is also the annual Irvine Butterfield Lecture, in association with The Munro Society, in commemoration of the local author and Munro Society champion.
Saturday Afternoon (Bonar Hall) Tickets £10- After six fantastic films from the Banff World Tour, we are thrilled to introduce the solo endurance traveller, writer and filmmaker Jenny Tough to talk about her tales of her recent world-first expeditions to run solo and unsupported across a mountain range on every continent, and DMFF will be the first audience to hear about her latest expedition in South America!
Saturday Evening (Bonar Hall) Tickets £15- After a quite eclectic mix of films from around the world, but including Scotland, we have a presentation by adventurer and explorer Benedict Allen. Benedict tells the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his wellbeing.
