Also being shown is a film about the extraordinary discipline of speed climbing, featuring in the in Olympic Games for the first time ever at Tokyo 2020.
Film highlights from this year's festival include:
Oxfordshire adventurer Sarah Outen embarks on a four-year, human-powered traverse of the globe, travelling by bike, kayak and rowing boat across Europe, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America and finally the Atlantic.
The punishing elements, months of solitude and storms push Sarah to the mental and physical brink, and Home intimately and unflinchingly captures her 20,000-mile odyssey.
Mission Antarctica 1,000 miles, 200+kg of kit each, 65 days, 3 mates and 1 mountain.
Using snow-kites to travel great distances, with massive loads at speeds of up to 60kmph, this is the epic tale of a daring dream to reach the summit of one of the most remote mountains on earth: The Spectre, Antarctica.
THE LADAKH PROJECT
Join French athlete Nouria Newman as she tackles a 375km solo kayaking expedition down the most remote and daunting rivers in the Indian Himalaya.
With some hair-raising moments, Nouria is forced to push herself to the edge of her limits, saying “I felt really vulnerable. I had a proper look at what my guts were made of.”
