Mitre Peak (7 mins) Director Jean-Luc Lazet, NZ.                                                                   (Voted GRASS ROOTS Award 2023 NZMFF)

The weather gods come through on Easter weekend in time for a multisport mission up Fiordland’s Mitre Peak. The most dramatic highline spot and some paragliding to minimise the bush bashing on the way down. 

 

Turn the Corner (10 mins) Director Ned Brannigan, NZ.                                                         (Voted MAKING AN IMPACT Award 2023 NZMFF)

Can you imagine climbing Lake Hawea’s Corner Peak 53 times over 53 days? In the construction industry, 53 people take their own lives every year, the worst affected industry in NZ. Glen calls on those in his community in the hopes of starting conversations as a method of prevention, and also to inspire others. 

 

Flow State (23 mins) Director Jacob Bowling, Producer Will Nelson.                             (Awarded BEST CIMEMATOGRAPHY 2023 NZMFF)

A documentary traversing the highest line of extreme sport as two friends challenge each other, and themselves, to overcome past trauma and become better men, 1000m above ground.

Mountain Turks (41 mins) Director Mark Johansson, NZ.                                                    (Awarded BEST DOCUMENTARY 2023 NZMFF)

The story of Erik Bradshaw and his crazy idea of building backcountry huts out of water tanks. The film is a powerful testament to the transformative power of a vision, the limitless potential of the human spirit, and the enduring spirit of NZ’s mountaineering community.

 

 New Way Up (25 mins) Director Jake Holland, UK.                                                         (Awarded GRAND PRIZE 2023 NZMFF)

The Karakoram mountains are known for their huge scale and jaw-dropping beauty. Nestled within them is Gulmit Tower, a technical granite pinnacle that has never been summited. Previous teams have often failed because the highly glaciated terrain makes the approach by foot long and treacherous. Maybe a paraglider can help?
