This years festival is presented by Osprey and Sherpa Adventure Gear with support of our media partners Utemagasinet , Åka Skidor, Retki, Ute and FriFlyt. During one evening we will show a wide variety of films with different lengths and subjects.
Osprey was born in California, 1974 at the seat of a single sewing machine, with a head full of ideas and a desire to design & build innovative backpacks to the highest quality. Today, Osprey products continue that pioneering spirit, being used on the highest mountains to the remotest islands and everywhere in between.
The company Sherpa Adventure Gear began in 2003 when founder Tashi Sherpa took a walk through Manhattan. On the cover of a magazine he spotted his uncle Ang Gyalzen Sherpa, who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on his historical first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953. To raise awareness for the harsh lives of the Sherpa and to celebrate the incredible achievements of such expeditions, Tashi Sherpa founded the company Sherpa Adventure Gear.
