Event description

Description

Cold films for warm hearts. Join filmmakers and adventurers in the Forest Yurt Cinema + Lounge for Opening Night of the Cradle Mountain Film Festival, with a series of amazing new ice-themed films.

See world reknown freeskiers Matthias Mayr and Matthias "Hauni" Haunholder as they scout Antarctica kite-surfing on skis to find the Holy Grail of freeriding and some of the most spectacular landscapes humans have ever skied in.

Antarctica is the coldest, driest, and windiest place on Earth, and has the highest average elevation of all continents. Mostly visited by scientists, polar explorers, sight-seeing tourists or people climbing Mt. Vinson, the extreme cold, the glaciated terrain and the desert climate made enjoyable freeskiing seem impossible.

Three men, each hauling a 90kg sled, covered a distance of more than 150km hiking and using kites. The resulting film is an impressive expose of Antarctic beauty.

There will be $10 meals available from 5PM, bar open, fires cranked, plus all the good frozen treats: ice cream and gin cocktails.

Ticketed separately or included in Festival Pass (use your unique code to reserve your Festival Pass seat).
