Calling all adventure lovers, the Kendal Mountain Film Festival is coming to Bristol to share an incredible night of adventure stories.

Watch the world's BEST adventure films - stories of talent, endurance and excitement to take your breath away! Ride icy waves in sub zero winter, chase tornados, run in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and mountain bike into the wildest reaches of your imagination.

Plus hear from two incredible speakers:

Kenton Cool is one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers having successfully climbed Mount Everest a record-breaking 13 times. Kenton was nominated for the prestigious piolet d’Or in 2004 for climbing a previously unclimbed route on Annapurna III and in 2012 he fulfilled the Olympic Games pledge of placing a 1924 gold medal on the Everest summit.

Jenny Graham is an endurance cyclist from the Scottish Highlands who in 2018 shattered the women’s around-the-world cycling record crossing 18000 miles across the globe, self-supported in just 124 days! The 37 year old joins us to share tales from her epic journey including avoiding bears in the Yukon and dodging kangaroos in the Outback.

The night will be hosted by Festival director Steve Scott and we'll be giving away prizes from our tour sponsors.

We’ll be screening the following incredible films*:

Surfer Dan (08’)
We are Send (04’)
Chasing Monsters (05’)
AMA (06’)
La Congenialita (30’)
Chasing the Frog (09’)
Point of a Ride (09’)

Kenton is one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers, having successfully climbed Mount Everest a record-breaking 13 times.

Thirteen-times Everest summiteer, and the first mountaineer in the world - alongside Sherpa Dorje Gyglen - to complete the Ultimate Three Peak Challenge, the so-called Triple Crown, of Nuptse, Everest and Lhotse in just three days. Kenton is also a leading high altitude guide with a reputation for being able to motivate his clients on the most challenging of climbs. His bold approach and determination to see his clients achieve their dreams has made him the most successful and sought after mountain guide of recent times.
