Sunday, November 10th, 5pm: Maiden
Maiden (UK) chronicles Tracy Edwards’ 1989–90 precedent-setting sea voyage around the world with an all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World Race, which, at the time was considered an exclusively masculine endeavour. Maiden documents Edwards’ formative experiences leading to her determination to participate in the competition with an all female crew. Combining exciting archival materials (including race footage) and new interviews in which Edwards and her crew members collectively narrate their experience, it is a classic tale of people contending with the elements. In a televised interview filmed before the Maiden set out, Edwards explains that she simply wants to be able to pursue her passion… and prove the all-male sailing establishment wrong.

About Indie Films Fernie:
Films shown cover a range of topics and include drama, music, comedy, documentary, and animation. Features are chosen based on merit and are shining examples of excellence in directorship, cinematography, acting, costume, set design, music and technical achievement from International Independent Production Companies. Past hits screenings have resulted in the film being held over for an extended showing due to popularity, including the sweeping biopic 'Mongol,' intense travel drama 'Into the Wild' and Academy Award darling 'The Artist.'
