McConkey Premieres In Ireland at Film Festival
Why Not? Adventure Film Festival brings ski films to Dublin
For immediate release
Monday, November 4: The Why Not? Adventure Film Festival is coming to Dublin’s Sugar Club/ Galway’s Taibhdhearc theatre/ Castlebar’s Linen Hall Theatre on November 16th, 21st, and 30th.
This year’s festival will screen award-winning adventure sport films from Ireland and across the globe. This selection of feature length and short films includes one/two Irish premieres such as McConkey.
McConkey tells the story of freeskiing and ski-BASE jumping pioneer Shane McConkey who passed away tragically aged 39. From his earliest days, to his big yellow “handicam” in college, to his budding life as a ski film star, Shane wrote his own movie. The red light was always on. Over a thousand hours of archive material were the building blocks of a film described by the New York Times as both ‘inspiring’ and ‘heartbreaking’. Join us this November and learn what drives someone to take such risks for the sake of progression.
