Film festival to celebrate free-flying
Wanak’s first “Freedom of Flight Film Festival” will be held this Saturday, at the Lake Wanaka Centre.
Co-organiser Pedro Pimentel said it was being held to coincide with the national cross-country paragliding championships being held in Wanaka and Queenstown this week.
He said the festival would showcase a variety of free-flight disciplines, including speedflying, hang gliding, and paragliding. The festival was a way to “bring the free-flight community together” and for friends and family of those who free-fly to understand why they do it.
