I can hardly believe I’m already discussing January when we’re barely even into the New Year… but if 2015 has taught me anything, it’s that planning ahead is crucial in the world of film. How else can we keep on top of all the exciting festivals, releases, and premiere’s that grace our towns and cities on a monthly basis?!

This month is no different as we welcome The Adventure Film Festival ’16 to The Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds. This two-night festival is running on the 15th and 16th January, bringing the world’s most incredible expedition documentaries and adrenaline-pumping extreme sport films to the big screen. If thrill is what you want, then it’s what you’ll get! Featuring extreme sportsmen who daringly defy gravity, expeditions that strengthen companionships and moments that will leave you on the edge of your seat, make sure you do not miss out…


This year’s line-up includes

– 3 Norwegian brothers searching for the perfect wave on a remote Arctic Island in the depths of winter in Bjornoya
– a 7,000 km, lama trek and rafting expedition from ‘source to sea’ of the mighty Amazon River in Objectif Amazone
– downhill mountain biking alongside stampeding mustangs in Wyoming in Unreal, and … jumping out of planes with the world’s oldest skydiver in The 82 Year Old Skydiver.
