SteepEdge the new way to watch films

With the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival taking place next month, our thoughts moved to thinking about how to watch the type of great films shown at festivals like this around the UK and the world.


Well, one answer is SteepEdge, a new UK company run by Brian Hall and John Porter, who founded the Kendal Mountain Film Festival in 1980 - which has since grown to be one of the top three Mountain Festivals in the world.



As with Kendal, the aim of SteepEdge is to showcase the best mountain and adventure sports films to the public while providing a sustainable platform to help professional mountain filmmakers, climbers and adventure sports men and women to achieve recognition and success.  

Steepedge has created a one-location community website, giving worldwide access to a huge selection of high quality mountain films – climbing, walking, skiing, kayaking, biking, adventure sports, culture, community and environment.  Within three years, the site hopes to have at least 500 films available from the earliest silent films to state of the art HD films.

Now as a special offer to readers of the Walks Around Britain blog, you can try the site and get a 50% discount off your first film until 29th Feb 2012 - just use the code SteepWAB2.
