So, you now have plenty of notice to pursue your favourite outdoor activities and to 'share the adventure'.
This is your chance to have your adventure video screened in full digital cinema glory. The video creators that attended the 2014 and 2015 screenings were 'blown away' seeing their videos / short films on the BIG screen.
AdventurePro is not necessarily seeking the most epic, hard-core, highest, steepest, fastest or most 'out there' videos --- if you have a passion for adventure and outdoor activities and have a good story to tell then we encourage you to enter.
We will hold the premiere screening of the best (and winning) videos at the Mansfield Armchair Cinema in Mansfield, Victoria --- as well as publishing a DVD after the event.
The Mansfield Armchair Cinema was the first digital cinema in Australia --- and we believe The AdventurePro Video Festival was the first Australian adventure short film / video screening to be presented in full digital cinema splendour!
All videos selected for the screenings will be converted into a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) to ensure the best viewing experience possible with exceptional digital video and audio quality!
The AdventurePro Video Festival will include two screenings on the Saturday evening of April 30th and Sunday morning of May 1st, 2016 at the Mansfield Armchair Cinemas in Mansfield, Victoria, Australia.
Lake Eildon is just a few minutes out of town, Mt Buller provides some awesome mountain biking trails, Mt Stirling offers some great four-wheel drive touring and there are plenty of other local attractions (including Fishing, Ned Kelly Tours, Cycle Tours, Horse Riding, the Mansfield Zoo, Golf, Local Wineries etc. etc.) to make for an adventurous fun-filled weekend; as well as enjoying some fresh and exciting family-friendly adventure films!
