European Outdoor Film Tour - Adventure For Real

Author : Press Release

Since its launch in 2001, the European Outdoor Film Tour has been screening carefully selected outdoor sports, adventure, and travel documentaries from all over the world. Stories of real people who live their dream of outdoor adventure and give the viewer unfettered access.

As founders and creators of the tour, our aspiration has always been to unearth the best films and compile them into an exclusive programme year after year. A composition of 7 films that can only be experienced in this format at E.O.F.T. events.

THIS IS REAL. Everything is real. Handmade, raw, and honest. At organic food shops you’d call it first-class quality - a self-imposed hallmark the E.O.F.T. adheres to year after year. For 17 years!

In over 200 hundred films, we’ve watched as world-class athletes, nonconforming dropouts, odd couples, and everyday adventurers fail miserably or experience thrilling highs. We’ve followed them to the far corners of the earth and have discovered the (im)possible facets of outdoor sports. The individual stories and adventures differ every year, but the realness endures.

This year is no exception. The E.O.F.T. 17/18 programme is made up of the most inspiring, compelling, and heartbreaking films whose unifying theme is wild places, human resilience, and risking it all. Here's an overview of all the films for this year.

The Programme 17/18

Ice Call

Ski: Freeskier Sam Favret follows the call of the ice and shows us the Mer de Glace from an entirely new perspective. For him, France’s largest glacier is basically a terrain park with natural half-pipes, kickers, and tunnels. we accompany him on his ride through a world of ice and snow, from highspeed descents to the depths of the glacier and back up again, with lots of freestyle tricks along the way.

Dug Out

Expedition: The dugout canoe is the oldest type of boat archaeologists have found. For thousands of years it has been used by the indigenous people of South America to navigate the jungle. With such a boat—basically made from hollowed out tree trunk—Benjamin Sadd and James Trundle have chosen to explore the mystical Amazon region. Making this dream come true starts with a lot of hard work—first step, felling a massive tree.

With the help of a Huaorani man named Bay Nenquiqwi, their dugout canoe gradually takes shape. Amidst the screaming monkeys and swinging lianas, the two Brits embark on a journey into the mysterious world of the jungle and discover themselves in an unexpected way.

Into Twin Galaxies

Expedition: Ben Stookesberry, Sarah McNair-Landry, and Erik Boomer are heading north. They want to cross Greenland’s gigantic ice sheets with snow kites, followed by a kayaking first descent in a meltwater stream down the glacier. But Greenland is tough terrain—it’s a journey into a fragile yet dangerous paradise.

During the snowkiting leg, Sarah must deal with a serious crash on the ice. Later, Boomer deliberately risks his skin on an enormous multilevel waterfall, and even Ben, the nard-nosed expedition expert, must ultimately concede that it can be officially too cold to kayak.

Follow The Eraser

Mountain Bike: Kyle Norbraten, James Doerfling, and Tom van Steenbergen want to rediscover their Canadian homeland. In search of undiscovered trails, they follow the Fraser River north from the Sunshine Coast to the Sibola mountain range in British Columbia.

The three mountain bikers plan to reach deep into their bag of tricks to build and ride features along the way, but they’ll need the right terrain. Til now, the Sibola range—named after one of the mythical Seven Cities of Gold—has never been tested for its bikeability, but they’re hoping to strike it big …

Choices

Portrait: Steph Davis chose climbing. The law student left school in her early twenties and followed her passion for the sport, earning a number of climbing achievements from Yosemite to Patagonia. For a while she called her car home before eventually settling in Moab, Utah, and discovered her second passion: BASE jumping.

Although she’s suffered many losses, including the death of her husband Mario Richards in a wingsuit accident, she’s never regretted having chosen her unconventional way of life—a life full of extraordinary choices proving that what seems to be a wrong decision at first can be the right one.

La Congenialità – The Attitude of Gratitude

Portrait: Simone Moro and Tamara Lunger are an odd pair. As an alpinist, Simone prefers to take the hard way and has nearly 30 years of winter climbing experience. Tamara, on her way to achieving a long and successful career in ski mountaineering, is just 30 years old. Despite the age difference, these two shared a similar goal and their roles were clear—he the wise mentor, she the eager student. But as the team heads for Kangchenjunga to attempt the highest traverse across 8000-meter peaks, their roles begin to shift.

USHBA

Ski: The 4710-meter-high Mount Ushba has long held a strong attraction for the Swiss freerider Samuel Anthamatten. In July 2017, he traveled to Georgia with Léo Slemett, winner of the Freeride World Tour 2017, and the South Tyrolean freerider Markus Eder, to descend the most distinguishable peak of the Caucasus Mountains for the first time on skis and to find out if the Caucasian powder delivers on its promises.
