The Why Not? Adventure Film Fesitval is run by Graham & Charlotte based out of Galway, Ireland.
MEET GRAHAM - This is all his fault!
"So I guess this bad boy is my doing. I've been toying around with the idea for the Why Not? Adventure Film Festival for about six years. While in the final year of my honours degree in Outdoor Education @ GMIT Castlebar myself and a couple of buddies made a kayaking DVD. Which we sold internationally. Despite the rather numerous coffee fuelled all nighters I pulled that year as I learned how to (badly) edit and produce an adventure film, the hardest part for me was sourcing the soundtrack. So this idea, this festival, grew out of that problem. Ireland has a world class pedigree when it comes to it's adventurers. Both past and present. And we have an amazing musical talent in these here shores. This festival is an attempt to bring these two worlds together and have some fun in the process. "

MEET CHARLOTTE. She's French!
In her own words..."I was probably a “Weekend warrior” in terms of adventures as I lived in Nancy and Lyon [France] for most of my studies, where there are not many outdoor “adventure” opportunities, except some rare BMX and skate contests during the Weekends. Nonetheless, after completing my MA in Culture and Communications at Lyon Political Sciences Institute and accomplishing my one year duty as a cultural coordinator for Auckland French Language and Cultural Institute [Alliance Française Auckland], I had plenty of opportunities to travel around New Zealand, Australia and Europe, snowboard, surf, wake board, kayak, white water raft, sand surf and other cool activities. And, here I am, back in one of my favourite countries to join the WNAFF team! I am more than excited to be part of such a brilliant concept of mixing adventure films, good music and a festival that is promising three great nights of adrenaline pumping entertainment and amazing sceneries"
