The 28th International Mountaineering Film Festival 2011 (MHFF- nicknamed Festak) in Teplice nad Metuji (Adrspach Rocks, Northeast Bohemia, CZ), takes place on August 25-28, 2011 and is full of climbing films. The guest is the legendary climber from Spain, Dani Andrada.
Dani Andrada has a lecture titled The Art of Climbing (El arte de escalar) on Friday, 08/26 at 20 hours in the cinema. He wrote that will arrive to Prague at 14.30, so I hope that he will reach to Teplice in time. Originally, I negotiated with him, whether he will take part on Saturday and Sunday bouldering competition, but he finally wrote that he had preferred not to compete for a long time and that he rather doesn't want.
The other guests there will be even climbers: on Saturday afternoon Leopold Súlovský morning and before him John Travnicek "Grass".
