Extentia Breakfast Talk: ‘Mountain Film Festival’
Pune, India, October 03, 2017
Extentia organized a Mountain Film Festival – screening select films of the Indian Mountaineering Federation’s (IMF) Mountain Film Festival 2017 on September 26. The IMF is a 58-year-old organization that releases several short films every year. The purpose is to take mountaineering and the spirit of adventure to a bigger platform. IMF provides a channel for those interested in adventure sports to express themselves.
From kayaking to base jumping, the festival and films covered every action sport. All the movies showcased a love for thrills, a reverence for Mother Nature, and described how a sense of adventure can be independent of disabilities.
Ganesh Geedh, Rohit Vartak, and Bhupesh Patil from Della Adventure were featured in a couple of the premiered films and were present at the session. They engaged the audience with their experiences – how they started, the current adventure sport scene, and their vision for the future of adventure sport. The stories of their rescue and recovery operations kept the audience riveted – many among them were interested in learning more.
