NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour
The NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour takes award winning films to audiences around NZ.
This is Part 1 of 2.
NIGHT ONE: - total time 113 minutes
We Don't Usually Have Ice Creams (10 mins) Director Paul McCredie, NZ.
This isn't your average pensioner walking group. They don't believe in tracks or
bridges. They scale untracked ridges, ford or swim rivers, scramble up waterfalls,
abseil over bluffs and seldom get home before dark. These men are tough, but the
women are tougher.
Traversing the Night (40 mins) Director Maddy Whittaker, NZ. With an average
age of 22, the four New Zealand Alpine Kids (as they called themselves) set off
from Arthur’s Pass. The dream was to traverse the spine of the Southern Alps for
the next three months until they reached Fiordland. The mountains are wonderful,
beautiful and healing – but they are healing because they make us confront things that
get drowned out in regular civilisation.
The Great Alpine Highway – 73 (23 mins) Directors Fin Woods, Chris Maunsell &
Craig Murray, NZ. This is a film following local skiers as they pile into Rongo – a
converted school bus – and explore some of NZ’s best terrain. They dive into the
eclectic club scene and meet some of the locals that make skiing in Aotearoa so
The Long Way Home (40 mins) Directors Rebecca Wardell & Whitney Oliver, NZ.
Three Kiwi women living in Switzerland decide to skip the airplane and take the
long way home - by bicycle. They set out on two wheels to cover the 20,000km
through Europe, Asia, and the length of New Zealand, learning many lessons along
