E11 wins two more awards in Slovenia

This weekend saw the first Domžale-Ljubljana Mountain Film Festival.

The festival screened over forty mountain films from around the world. Included in that line up were three films from Hot Aches Productions…

Fools With Tools

I met the festival director Silvo Karo in the bar at Kendal this year and he told me about his plans for the festival and asked if we would enter E11.

From what I see and hear the first festival was a great success, I hope we can make it over there to this festival in future years.

An international panel of judges awarded E11 the Best Mountains Sports and Adventure Film Award. This is how the award was announced:
The Judges: Daniela Cecchin, Julie Summers, Ines Božič Skok, Michael Pause, Igor Likar

"The award for this category goes to a film that explores the limits of personality beyond belief, pain, stamina and life goals. There is a clear idea by the film maker to follow this climber in all aspects of his life, both internal and external as he makes a commitment to a difficult route on a local rock. His is a small world but his aims are universal. Using modern film techniques, narration, music and editing the film is entirely successful in addressing issues bigger than the climb itself – that of personal achievement. The film is E11."

In addition to the awards presented by the judges, the Alpine Association of Slovenia awarded their Best Alpine Climbing Film Award to E11.

Dave Brown was in Eastern Europe over the weekend and adds that
I met some Slovenian climbers involved with the festival and E11 certainly seems to have made a big impression. It is probably no coincidence that the film has done well in a country that also has such a strong tradition of trad climbing. I'm psyched to get out there to get out there myself on a climbing trip soon.

E11 On Sale
A lot of climbers in eastern europe were unaware that E11 is on sale on DVD. We don't have any distribution in arrangements in this part of the world, however the DVD can be purchased on-line at many websites, including direct from Dave MacLeod's own webshop.

Being one of your closest readers, it was a great pleasure to meet Dave and Fiona in Buşteni for the last stage of the IWC 2007. I felt quite happy for this and by posting this comment I want to thank you again Dave for giving me a copy of E11, which I do consider it in this moment as being THE BEST CLIMBING MOVIE I have ever seen.

Thanks guys for your hard work and keep up the good spirit.
