Peebles Outdoor Film Festival: Short films + Olly Hicks

Woza, 6’ – a Zulu surfer is taken as a lover by the African water spirit Mami Wata

Dedicate: Diving free, 8’ – free-diving with Orca off the coast of northern Norway

Cascada, 8’ – pro paddlers hunt the remote Mexican jungle for the perfect waterfall

The Accord, 19’ – man vs The North Atlantic Wind. Surfing in Iceland is not for the faint-hearted … (see trailer below)

The Invincibles, 3’ – three open water swimmers who never miss a beat

Tonight’s short films (above) focus on all things wet and wild, followed, after the interval, by an evening with ocean adventurer Olly Hicks. Since becoming the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic at the age of 23, Olly’s passion for the sea has seen him undertake a range of daunting voyages, with the biggest yet to come – an attempt at the first solo row around the world, beginning in December 2018.
