On May 25, adventure seekers piled into the auditorium at Pontiac High School for an evening of adrenaline-spiking, vertigo-inducing films.
Six features were shown in total, for a total run time of a little over two hours, with an intermission in between. Teacher Jordan Kent explained that the event was a partnership with the Ottawa Adventure Film Festival, which was held for the first time in 2017.
“Festivals like this ... they have their main event and they go on tour. We're at three locations this year,” he said. “It's meant to get the outdoor adventure community together. I hope to do it again and build it.”
