CAC film evening: Thursday 16 February 2017

Last year we hosted a charity film night for Climbers Against Cancer.

We are going to host another on *Thursday 16 February from 7pm in the Water Poet, London.

Save the date - more details to come! :slight_smile:

Ha thanks. Maybe we can consider touring next @khalidqasrawi. Shame you can’t make it @Tom_S and @naomi_sorrel I won’t wish bad weather on your trip!

The 2017 NLMC film night programme is here, bringing you five incredible films:

  • Project Mina - Jen Rendall
    A film by the fantastic director who brought us Operation Moffat, this one is sure to not disappoint
  • Transition - Paul Diffley and Chris Prescott
    Transition follows UK competition climber Natalie Berry over the course of two years as she makes the transition from indoor to out, plastic to rock and ice. Also features Dave Macloed and Lucy Creamer
    A Line in the Snow - Ben Tibbets
    On the one of the wildest coastlines on Earth, a group of four skiers plan to climb and ski new routes.
  • Damavand - An Iranian Dream - Shirin Shabestari
    A ski mountaineering team from the UK set out to climb Iran’s highest mountain, Mount Damavand (5610 m). The team is lead by Shirin Shabestari, an Iranian woman now resident in Londo
  • Wide Boyz: Staffordshire Nose
    Wideboyz’ Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker broke the Staffordshire Nose Challenge record, knocking two and a quarter hours off the previous record and finishing in 2 hours 44 minutes.

All are welcome so bring friends, family and colleagues along and help us raise money for CAC.

Looking forward to it, Jo!

I don’t think @naomi_sorrel or I are going to be able to make it because we’re planning to be away on holiday next week. If it is so wet we return to London early then we’ll be there.

Looks great! I think this festival should go on a UK tour, similar to
Banff, for the benefit of those of us putting the “north” into nlmc.

Harriet, we’ll look into the possibility of a “North” viewing if you can organise dates / posters etc! We can then have a north / south charity competition and see which “gives” the most. :wink:

Imelda and I are coming for sure!

I’ve just got all the films downloaded and ready for presentation. I’m trying hard not to watch them all before Thursday but from the snips that I’ve seen they look great.

If you are going folks, make sure to sign up here to get priority entry on the night.

Great poster Jo, I am definitely attending.

We could do a ‘northern’ showing jointly with the CC - could use the Beacon Climbing wall I expect …can organise should that be seen as a good idea …

The Beacon is not North! :-p

@khalidqasrawi, I wouldn’t expect too much competition - you know what they
say about the ratio of a Yorkshireman’s arm length to pocket depth!

We have connections in the Peak Climbing club too (Sheffield) Ian Lau and Paul’s brother Joe. So could spread the word for a northern showing.

And I have in the Pinnacle Club and Oread … and lots of people in N Wales and Sheffield - could be done :slight_smile:
Harri might prefer something further north

A viewing further up north would be appreciated :slight_smile:

If you want it further north than N Wales someone else needs to organise but I might come depending where and when! :slight_smile:

The (London! :wink: ) charity film night is TONIGHT! Don’t forget to grab cash to donate to CAC.

The event will be downstairs, a few of us are wearing my NLMC red t-shirt so if you get there earlier pop down and say hello!

See you there around 6.30pm for a 7(ish) pm start - late commers are still very much welcome though. You’ll only miss the trailers… :wink:

Ooops my mistake it’s going to start at 7.30pm so arrive at 7 or before if you want to secure the very best seats in the house.
