Celebrate the lifestyle that escapes the nine to five grind

Dirtbag weekend looms, Kimberley. The two Dirtbag shows on Friday and Saturday, March 25 and 26 give one and all a chance to relish the dirtbag lifestyle, where the nine to five grind is exchanged for a life of adventure.

The festival offers a selection of film, images and stories by Dirtbags, those who are willing to sacrifice and drop at a moments notice: their jobs, their family, their income and their homes in search of adventure.

It will feature 15 short films and slideshows filmed or produced locally. They embody the true source of inspiration for dirtbags, which, at the end of the day, is simply having a good time. The films range from the quirky to the serious; from the silly and fun to downright epic.

Friday March 25 will feature a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Will Gadd whose adventures have taken him around the world, live music by Calgary up and comers Burlap Sac and a presentation of this year’s film submissions: 15 locally filmed or produced short films and slideshows.

On Saturday March 26, Dirtbag favorite Mitchell Scott, editor of Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine, returns to host the evening. All 15 local films will be screened, as well as the corner stone of the festival: The Community Slideshow. Live music by Kimberley’s ‘The Hollers’.

A few tickets are still available for both nights. go to www.dirtbagfest.com.

It all happens this Friday and Saturday at the Kimberley Conference Centre.
