FIND IT FILM FESTIVAL supported by Natracare
Our launch event in Bristol couldn't have been better! Chrissie Wellington OBE opened the event and spoke about her life in triathlon and involvement in our headline film - Impossible. Mina Leslie-Wujastyk's film about climbing in South Africa proved really popular and there was a lot of love in the room for local filmmaker Hannah Price whos' film about Paragliding inspired everyone. The girls of the Bristol Storm Basketball team were also there in force to see the premiere of our own film featuring them. All in all it was fantastic evening and we're looking forward to bringing the event to more cities soon.
A huge thanks to Susie Hewson of Natracare who supported this event and the making of the Bristol Storm Basketball film, we couldn't have done it without their support. Thanks also to Meridian for providing Nut Bars for everyone and Cotswold Outdoor for the very popular Prize Draw.
