The European Outdoor Film Tour Has Arrived!

Posted: 13 Oct 2018
Adventure is waiting.

Starting this October, E.O.F.T. is screening around the world with the most inspiring and thrilling adventure films of the year.

The brand new programme is packed with inspiring short films from the great outdoors, breath-taking athletic feats and inspiring stories with every film especially edited and produced for the E.O.F.T. 

From awesome mountain biking in North of Nightfall, to top ending climbing with Adam Ondra’s The A.O. - In the Zone, to paragliding at 8000M over the Himalayas and much much more.

We are proud to be touring E.O.F.T. across Australia, New Zealand and selected Asian countries starting next week, just days after the European Premiere took place in Munich this week which we were lucky enough to attend.  Check our website to find your nearest show. Can’t find your location? Get in touch with us about bringing E.O.F.T. to your local community.

No casting. No actors. No makeup. This is real.

PROGRAMME

THE A.O.

Adam Ondra is one of the most successful and versatile sport climbers of our time. He successfully climbed the most difficult route in the world, now called Silence, and established a new level of difficulty—9c. The Czech climber has also shown what he can do when it comes to big wall climbing; he ascended the Dawn Wall in just eight days—on his very first trip to Yosemite. His strong, lean body seems to effortlessly transcend gravity. But is it simply Adam’s muscle power and endurance that enables him to conquer the most difficult routes? Or is it his mental strength that drives him climb an 8a while blindfolded? We find out more about the forces that drive this climbing talent to new heights in The A.O.

TAMARA - AT THE PEAK OF EMOTIONS

In 2012, Tamara Lunger saw the 8,611-meter summit of K2 for the first time. The sight of it was awe-inspiring, not least because K2 is considered the most dangerous of the 8,000-meter peaks: More than 80 climbers have lost their lives here. Still, in 2014, the 28-year-old made her way back to Pakistan with alpinist Nikolaus Gruber to take on the biggest challenge of her mountaineering career. Between fear, passion and happiness—this is a portrait of a woman who lives and loves extremes.

NORTH OF NIGHTFALL

Axel Heiberg Island is Canada's seventh largest island and lies north of the Arctic Circle. In Winter, it is cloaked in total darkness and completely blanketed by snow and ice. But when the sun rises again, the island flourishes, revealing its rocky landscape crisscrossed by mighty glaciers and offering the most spectacular mountain bike terrain. It’s no wonder Darren Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink, and Tom van Steenbergen can't resist the endless descents. 

MBUZI DUME - STRONG GOAT  

'Mbuzi Dume' is Swahili and means 'strong goat'. It's the nickname given to Tom Belz on his Kilimanjaro climb by his African mountain guide. The difference is that this 'strong goat' has climbed the mountain not on four but on three legs; more precisely—on one leg and two crutches. Tom's left leg was amputated when he was just eight years old, and since then, he has perfected his technique on crutches. Nevertheless, until recently, he wouldn't have dreamed of traveling to Kilimanjaro and experiencing a sunrise at an altitude of 5895 meters, and he certainly would not have imagined that he'd be sharing this adventure with Dr. Klaus Siegler, the man who saved his life 23 years ago. For both men, climbing Kilimanjaro symbolizes the challenges in life that everyone must surmount. 

8000+  

In July 2016, the paraglider Antoine Girard set off on a three-week hike-and-fly tour to explore the Karakorum mountains in Pakistan—alone. From the town of Skardu, he heads for the highest peaks of the Karakorum mountain range. The Frenchman has already twice failed in his attempts to climb the 8,051-meter-high Broad Peak and paraglide from the summit down into the valley. Now, his hope is that the upwinds will carry him and his chute to the summit—and possibly beyond. If he succeeds, he will set a new altitude record in paragliding, but the air is thin between the 8,000-meter peaks, and take-offs and landings are extremely tricky. Especially when you only have one person to rely on—yourself.  

A TO B ROLLERSKI  

In 1988, Raimonds Dombrovskis began the longest training run of his biathlon career. Accompanied by his dog, Bucis, and a VW Bulli full of equipment, he set out to cover 6,700 kilometers on rollerskis, from Canada’s far north to the Mexican border. The gravel roads are bumpy, the leggings are skintight, and the outcome of the project is highly uncertain. But the winds of change are blowing—not only in the streets of North America but also in Raimonds’s Latvian homeland. He is convinced that the collapse of the Soviet Union is imminent. His dream is to compete for the Latvian (not the Soviet!) biathlon team at the next Olympic Winter Games... but first, he has to make it to Mexico.

THE FRENCHY

"No problem!" Anyone who hears Jacques Houot's life story will be surprised at how the 82-year-old has managed to reach this age. There were at least 23 times in his life when he could have met his end all too early. Somehow, he has always managed to land on his feet and keep going. Today, Jacques spends most of his time in the mountains near his home in Carbondale (Colorado). No mountain bike trail and no ski slope is safe from the likes of this native Frenchman. Jacques Houot loves life and he lets everyone know it.
