Chasing Niagara (75 mins)
When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz decides to follow his dream to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion an incredible series of events that eventually takes on a life of its own. Together they go on a remarkable three-year journey from the rainforest rivers of Mexico to the towering waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest. It’s a journey that changes his life forever. Scottish Premiere!
FINALIST – BEST FILM AWARD

Guest Speaker – Luke Robertson: Beyond Fear
From Operating Table to Operation South Pole
Luke Robertson explores how harnessing the power of fear helped him overcome heart and brain surgery to ski 730 miles solo and unsupported to the South Pole, becoming the first Scot and second youngest in history to do so.
