15 Official Selections / 8 Countries / 5 Awards After selling out two Canmore screenings, Canmore-based Irish filmmaker and adventurer Alan Corcoran is coming to The Plaza to showcase his film Unsinkable and take audience questions before Unsinkable's Canadian cinema tour begins. The story of Alan Corcoran’s unprecedented 500-kilometre sea swim from Antrim to Waterford for charity has all the hallmarks of a fascinating documentary. With the stunning backdrop of Northern Ireland and Ireland’s wild coastline, the story tells the succession of challenges faced during such a monumental undertaking. Raising €30,000 for cancer and stroke charities in memory of his dad, it’s a film that explores a person’s journey through grief, using the swimming project to channel negative emotions into a meaningful, hopeful, inspiring adventure. 'Alan's length of Ireland sea swim epitomises the spirit of outdoor swimming. Unsinkable is an inspiring tale of family, adventure, triumph, and hope' Outdoor Swimmer Magazine 'Unsinkable is a sincere and emotional story of resilience and determination...extremely positive and kind viewing experience...very enjoyable to watch unfold' Film Carnage (Critic Review) 'Unsinkable is a tale of glory and achievement borne from loss and pain' Swimming World Magazine 20 mins Q&A with Alan Corcoran after the screening. Alan Corcoran is a charity fundraising Irish adventure athlete. Competing as an international track and field athlete as a juvenile, he switched to ultra-endurance at the age of 20, when his dad suffered a stroke. Alan has since fundraised €45,000 for stroke and cancer charities through his resilience challenges. Alan became the first person to run a lap of Ireland - 35 marathons in 35 consecutive days - and the first person to swim the length of Ireland - a 500-kilometre sea swim - on his second attempt. He’s written an award-winning book (Marathon Man) and created an award-winning feature-length documentary film (Unsinkable) about his two adventures.
