Festak 2005 according to Leo Houlding

Film Festival

smAccording to unofficial information, the Italian film "The Conquest of K2" won the grand prize at the 22nd International Mountaineering Film Festival (also known as Festak) which took place in Teplice nad Metuji (Northern Bohemia) 25-28 August 2005.
The honoured guest of the festival Leo Houlding, climbing ace from UK, told me today on my way out from nearby Adrspach Rocks.

He said his film "My Right Foot" succeeded in one of the categories. I do not more at the moment, I was not present at the official announcement at 13:00 pm, and after that in the afternoon everything was closed (the town was absoulutely quiet). The results should appear on the sites of ČHS and města Teplice nad Metují (and later are attached to the end of this article).

There was a competition in bouldering during the Festival. Look at the results in the extra story  Czech boulder Cup - Teplice/Metuji - results

The night program at the playfield

Leo Houlding tried in the afternoon a route graded 9b (Czech/Saxon scale) and said it was a lot harder then it should be, if it is compared with equal French 7a. He was in Adrspach several times before, he likes it, but it is quite specific climbing one has to get accustomed to it and be there with some local climber to give you beta.
Leo looked at Homole cukru, a tower which has no free accent yet, but he said he was here only for two days so he would rather not to try it, he is glad to have healthy feet, so he would like to go back home all right...  (Adrspach sandtones climbing is famous for its dangerous routes with runouts, rare bolts and limited usage of gear - only slings and knots can be used, no nuts or cams.)

"Festak" was really brilliant, wonderful, excellent.
There was only one thing I didn't understand. The language translation. Each foreign film was translated by simultaneous interpreting. It was quite strange, you know? I suppose that there were many of people who knew speak English and the translation was a little bit disturbing. It's only my opinion. Do anyone know why? Why not sub-titles? Thanx! Have a nice day:-)
