Film Fest Director and Founder Clay Croft’s hope for the event is to bring the overland community together for an evening of visual storytelling. 

“We launched the Overlander Film Festival this year to encourage and inspire travelers to share their stories. Storytelling is at the heart of any traveler, and we’re excited to see filmmakers from around the globe represented in this year’s festival.” – Film Fest Director, Clay Croft
