Find It Film Festival – women’s sport and adventure
Find It Film Festival is a new project designed to share the many incredible stories of women’s sport and adventure, from high flying Olympians and intrepid adventurers to women and girls enjoying sport in their communities. The festival events will be fun and lively, showing a programme of short films and giving you the chance to hear first hand from some of the featured women.
Alongside the main programme, the project aims to make new films about sporting stories in each of the venues that it visits. At the launch event in Bristol, a film is being made about Bristol Storm Basketball team – the club has a reputation locally for being both ambitious to make it to the WBBL (top basketball league in the UK for women) as well as working hard to offer free sessions for girls across the city. This film will be shown at the Bristol event which aside from the ticketed evening event, will host free screenings for school girls.
BRISTOL FILM FESTIVAL – March 10
To kick it off in style, Find it Film are have signed up triathlon legend, Chrissie Wellington MBE to open the event and speak briefly about her involvement in the headline film – Impossible – which follows paracyclist Karen Darke as she attempts an IronMan triathlon. There will be an excellent supporting programme of short films including films featuring runner, Paula Radcliffe and climber, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, as well as the premiere of Find it’s own film about Bristol Storm Basketball club. This event and film are kindly supported by Natracare, so please support them in kind by taking a look at their website.
