Those in attendance on the night also get to have their say and vote for their favourite film in the ‘Public Choice’ Award and the ‘Mc Conkey’ Award for most inspiring film. Speaking about the event, festival organiser Graham Clarke is keen to point out that “audience engagement is probably the most important aspect of this festival for us. Picking films and speakers that really engage and inspire the audience is what this event is about and we hope through the festival that more people are inspired to undertake their own adventures. No matter how small. That’s why we try to make the event as interactive as we can.”
