Champion Kiwi freediver Kathryn Nevatt on the big screen at Mountain Film Festival


Holding her breath has become a career for Queenstown freediver Kathryn Nevatt, who is one of several adventurers featuring on the big screen at this year’s Mountain Film Festival.

Nevatt was first introduced to freediving when a scuba buddy invited her to a training session in Queenstown. She admits initially find the sport “odd” but after setting a national record, she was hooked.

“Freediving is a very personal challenge. Even when you’re competing, you’re not competing against other people, you’re competing against yourself,” she says in a clip from the film, titled The Breath Connection.
