Kendal Mountain Festival
« on: 08:09:55, 20/11/20 »
Anyone else signed up for this? It's all online, of course, with live events and films. It's not that cheap, I don't think, but I signed up for the film pass as I do like a good mountain movie and there are a lot to choose from in the festival.


I had some trouble Chromecasting (first film in a collection was fine but autoplaying the next one lost the connection and it was a pain to recover it) so I ended up plugging my laptop's shonky HDMI port into the TV.

Great stuff, but I will probably binge watch.  I am under docs orders to do nothing as the pleurisy I got a couple of weeks ago has returned with a vengeance.  Hopefully the festival will help the time pass.

Just watched Ocean to Sky, about Hillary and his trip up the Ganges. Beautiful film worth the cost of the pass alone.

Highly recommend this to anyone considering it, there is a large volume of films, the ones I have watched so far are all quality, though obviously some are more interesting to me than others,  but some remarkable people and lots to learn.  36 well spent, for me.


Thanks again snaderson.

Cheers pdstsp. I actually did some bingeing this weekend! As you say, they are all really good quality, some interesting stories and great cinematography .


Some are kind of left-field with regard to 'outdoors'. Like Stalking Chernobyl, about people who lead guided tours around the abandoned towns near the site of the disaster, which was really good (especially with the explicit references to Andrei Tarkovsky's film).


The short drama about cheese rolling in Gloucestershire (part of the Outside Thinkers collection) was brilliant!
