Adventure Travel Film Festival (Australia) - 15-17 Feb 2013

Hi guys!

Just a heads-up that the 2013 Adventure Travel Film Festival (Australia) is fast approaching! It'll be in the gorgeous Alpine Valley region of Victoria, in the village of Bright, 15th-17th Feb 2013.

I'm one of the organisers and I can tell you that this year's line-up of adventurers, workshops, adventure films and cold is going to be even more brilliant than last year! Plus Austin Vince and Lois Pryce will once again be joining us in beautiful Bright to ensure the weekend goes off with a suitable bang!

All details are right here on the website:

Australian Festival 15-17 Feb 2013 : The Adventure Travel Film Festival

My advice is to buy tickets soon as they're already selling like hot cakes and when they're gone, they're gone!

Hope to see you there, guys.

Jeanie

Camping in Bright

Hi ozranger!

Great to hear you're joining us at the Festival.

There are numerous camping options in and around Bright that will all be populated by festival-goers that weekend. One we'd recommend is:

Bright Pine Valley Tourist Park - Bright's prettiest park - luxury cabins, budget cabins and powered sites

A great spot - mention the Festival when booking!

See you there!

Jeanie

Cheap as chips camping option

Hi Corey!

I figured it was you when I saw your Las Vegas location in your profile - hello again!

This place offers very cheap camping options - an "unpowered" pitch is $16, I think:

Bright Backpackers - Victoria

Hope this helps!

Hi guys,

Looking forward to seeing you all in lovely Bright!

The festival officially opens from 2pm on the Friday and there are a couple of films scheduled that afternoon.

Frivolities kick off at around 5pm when Austin Vince and Lois Pryce will host drinks at the Bright Brewery.

You can click on the link here to see the schedule for all three days:

Hi Corey,

I've put the word out among people I know in Melbourne who might be going to the festival, and also Tweeted via my personal account and @austravfilmfest to see if anyone can help you out.

I'd give you a lift myself but I'm probably going up on the bike and will likely be leaving Thursday to help get things set up for the event.

I'll let you know if I hear of anyone who might be able to help you, though - will be a shame if you can't get there till Sat arvo!
