Messner Headlines Dundee Festival
Dundee Mountain Film Festival 2008 dates and attractions.
Posted: 24 September 2008
A bit of a heads-up for Scottish OMers with advance news from this year's Dundee Mountain Film Festival
which takes place from 26-30
and features a cracking line-up including
the legendary Italian mountaineer, Reinhold
Messner, as if you didn't know already, was the first man to summit all
14 of the world's 8,000-metre peaks and the first to climb Everest
without supplementary oxygen along with his partner Peter Habeler. He
has a strong claim to be regarded as the world's greatest ever
mountaineer and he'll be lecturing at the Bonar Hall, Dundee University
on the Saturday night.
The event kicks off with an opening by e Slovenian alpinist Tomaz
Humar, and the former Director of the Banff Mountain Festivals
Bernadette McDonald on the Wednesday evening and from then on in, it's
a mixture of award-winning mountain films and lectures from top
climbers including Dave MacLeod on Friday evening.
Rather than blather on though, we suggest you take a look at the
festival web site at www.dundeemountainfilm.org.uk
where you can find both full details of the programme and venues and
details of how to obtain tickets. Looking good :-)
