Make your own documentary film with the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour featuring blind professional climber Andy Holzer.

Outdoor fans and film enthusiasts take note! The next GORE-TEX Experience Tour competition is giving four lucky winners the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make their own outdoor film. Under the professional guidance of experts from the European Outdoor Film Tour (E.O.F.T.), the winners will make a documentary film featuring blind professional climber Andy Holzer.


Online registration for the GORE-TEX Experience Tour is now open at The application phase ends on 12 April 2013.

Despite being born blind Austrian extreme climber Andy Holzer has conquered some of the world’s highest mountains. He firmly believes that people generally overestimate the importance of being able to see. As part of the “European Outdoor Film School” GORE-TEX Experience Tour four lucky winners will have the chance to get to know this outstanding athlete. They and their cameras will accompany him at the end of June when he tackles climbing routes near the town of Lienz in the Austrian Dolomites. The winners will be supported by professional filmmakers from E.O.F.T. who will guide them through the different stages involved in filmmaking: from designing the storyboard to planning, shooting and editing the film. They will be sharing their tips and tricks with the winners to help them produce an unforgettable film experience. The documentary will be screened as part of this year’s E.O.F.T. The GORE-TEX Experience Tour will last seven days.
