Why Not? Adventure Film Festival


Why Not? Adventure Film Festival takes place in the Sugar Club this Saturday before making its way to Castlebar and Galway. It’s an unusual topic for a Film Festival, but looks like something worth checking out.

It’s a full day of events, with three separate screenings and then an after show party, so something for everyone! Tickets can be bought here, and you can buy them for one event or for the full day. Not to shabby.

Check out the details below…

 This year at WNAFF we’re bringing you world class, award winning adventure films, exciting short films from Ireland and across the globe and a unique and innovative music and movie experience.
