Where Are My Glass Slippers?

Kev's work (Ogden Climbing Parks) is in the midst of preparations for the High Adventure Mountain Film Festival. Not just a film festival, mind you. A High Adventure film festival. And guess what! There's a GALA!! I need a Fairy Godmother.

Wanna know what else is going on? For your convenience, I cut and paste what the OCP website is saying about the upcoming events, taking place Thursday, September 18th through Sunday, September 21st:

Who, What, Where?
Films, Panel Discussions, and award ceremonies will take place at the historic Egyptian Theater and the Eccles Conference Center in downtown Ogden, UT. Filmmakers will be invited to present their films and will have a short question and answer session after their film has screened.

On Friday night, we will feature films highlighting legendary award-winning mountain filmmakers and father-son team, Roger and Michael Brown. Michael Brown’s Endless Knot, a film about climbers Alex Lowe and Conrad Anker, will be screened as well as Roger Brown’s 1979 classic Ama Dablam. Roger and Michael Brown are guests of honor and they will be recognized for their several decades of contribution to the mountain film genre.

Panel Discussions
Strong Women Friday 9/19 4-6pm Ogden Eccles Conference Center

Above the Summit Saturday 9/20 11:00am – 1:00pm Ogden Eccles Conference Center

Great Parties!
Party on the town at the “Filmmaker’s Bash” on Thursday September 18th with “The Bastard Redheads.”
Join us for the “Gala Awards Dinner” Saturday September 20th.

Why Ogden?
Utah’s High Adventure Mountain Film Festival 2008 will be unique among mountain film festivals for several reasons:
-Ogden is a superior location for people who want to participate in mountain sports in addition to watching films. We have excellent climbing, kayaking, mountain biking and skiing within minutes of downtown.
-The proximity to Salt Lake City International Airport provides easy access for film makers, speakers, special guests and the general public.
-Utah’s High Adventure Mountain Film Festival will screen many of the selections and all the award winners at the Peery’s Egyptian Theater; “a movie palace that is the showcase of the West”. Peery’s Egyptian is one of an estimated dozen Egyptian-style theatres of movie palace status remaining in the United States.
-Our film festival will highlight the best of Mountain Film. We will screen the winners of many of the world’s major mountain film festivals from this year thus assuring that we’ll have the “best of the best” of mountain film.
-Additional films of exceptional quality will be chosen by our jury for screening and for competition for our own awards.
-We will have several premier showings of brand-new film works.

Doesn't it sound like quite the High Adventure? I'm excited to participate in some of the events with Kev. If you're in the Ogden area, please come check out this great festival!

If you'd like to be in the Ogden area, please refer back to the OCP website and get information about lodging. It's a great opportunity to connect with some great climbers and see some amazing films.

The tickets/passes are a great deal for all that you get at the Festival: films, food, climbing legends, Q&A with film-makers, and so much more.

I know Kev's been working extremely hard with other members of OCP to make this event a success and it will be if you come. You'll definitely see my honey if you're there Saturday-- he's MC-ing all afternoon.
