J.R. Harris – and Films
After almost fifty years of wilderness travel since he first impulsively drove out of New York in a VW Beetle headed towards the most northern road in Alaska, J.R. Harris has plenty of tales to tell. Way Out There is his account of ordinary and extraordinary exploits, twists and turns, while backpacking in some of the world’s most tantalizing places.
Presentation followed by book signing and films in competition.

THE LORAX PROJECT
Six friends embark on a determined quest to climb, and then BASE jump 'The Lorax', a formidable climb in remote western Tasmania. Surrounded by some of the most pristine wilderness in all of Australia, they contend with extreme weather and rugged terrain, relying on each other's skills and a bit of humour to reach their goal.
Follow Lee* and Rickie in this raw and real portrayal of the places we go emotionally when under extreme duress while riding 190 kilometres a day from Banff to Mexico.
