Film Collection Run
Watch 90 minutes of brand new adventure films from our 2019 International Film Competition presented by Pertex
We’re delighted to announce the films within Collection Run will be:
Bob and Marion
AMANDA BLUEGRASS / Run
Bob and Marion have done so many miles and marathons between them and continue to run within marriage and ‘maturity’
Every Single Street
DEAN LESLIE &HANNAH SLEZACEK / Run / Adventure
In the same thread of his transcontinental run across America and getting to know a very thin line of his own country, Rickey Gates decided to run every single street in San Francisco - to get to know a very small area of America, as well as its people, intimately. With over 1100 Miles of street the film documents Rickey’s journey, and the people he meets long the way, as he runs into midst of one of the most iconic and diverse cities in the world.
Coming Home - Ag Teacht Abhaile
RYAN SCURA & DYLAN LADDS / Run / Adventure
Paddy O'Leary grew up in Wexford, Ireland, but didn't discover his love and talent for running until he moved to San Francisco. Now, he is returning to Ireland to take on the fastest known time on the self-navigated 115 kilometer Wicklow Round, and to rediscover his home through the lens of running.
Last Women Standing
SUMMIT FEVER MEDIA / Run
British Inov-8 Athlete Nicky Spinks takes on The Barkley Marathons in a bid to be the first woman to complete the race since 1986. Set in the wild and unforgiving Frozen Head State Park, Tennessee, USA.
For 2019, due to popular demand, we’ve swapped our day film passes to individual film session tickets. This gives you full flexibility of our programme, so you can choose the exact sessions you’d like to see. More info on this decision here.
We're working hard to make our Festival fully accessible, and there are dedicated spaces reserved for wheelchair users in our venues with the exception of the Fleece Inn. Unfortunately within the Fleece Inn the cinema space is situated on an upper floor with no lift access. To ensure nobody misses out on the action, all film screenings held at the Fleece Inn, will also be held at other venues. For more information head to Festival Accessibility.
THANKS TO PERTEX
OUR FILM PROGRAMME PRESENTING PARTNER
If you're wearing a lightweight, high-performance windproof or waterproof mountain garment, there's a good chance it'll be constructed using Pertex fabrics. Founded in 1979 near Burnley, the company has steadily grown from humble beginnings into an iconic fabric technology brand, creating technical fabrics mainly used in garments and sleeping bags. Being so close to its outdoor users, Pertex has increasingly chosen to communicate stories through the medium of film. Its six-part series Elemental Journeys explores stories from people whose lives are defined by wild spaces and mountain adventures. At Kendal, we're proud that Pertex is the presenting sponsor of our International Film Competition.Discover Pertex
