2021 FILM COLLECTION (runtime 2 hours 35 minutes - including an Interval)

Katherine’s Marathon (26 mins) Director Nicolas Falquet, France, subtitles.
Katherine was the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route (NZ grade 35) and she decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps, with Jungfrau Marathon, a route with a radically different style.
Made in Aotearoa (37 mins) Directors Andy Deere and Ryan Heron, NZ. Young up-andcoming surfer Kehu Butler shows us his favourite spots around NZ as we learn about his family and deep connections to friends and ocean. This is the first time an NZ film has won this award, EPIC!
