NO SCRIPT. NO ACTORS. NO SPECIAL EFFECTS. THIS IS REAL!

European tour starts 6 October | more than 330 venues | 7 films | total length: 120 minutes

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 6-10 films that can only be experienced in this format at E.O.F.T. events.

More information about films and dates.

QUICK GLANCE AT THE PROGRAMME 17/18:

ICE CALL

ICE CALL, 167 kb
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 high-speed descents to the depths of the glacier and back up again, with lots of freestyle tricks along the way.

DUG OUT

DUG OUT, 215 kb
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

INTO TWIN GALAXIES, 218 kb
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.

CHOICES

CHOICES, 149 kb
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 GRATIDUDE

LA CONGENIALITÀ - THE ATTITUDE OF GRATIDUDE, 233 kb
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.
