16th Mountain Film Festival

The 16th edition of the festival showcases new films about mountains and the world of climbing. Epic stories from the Himalayas on the big screen. Reinhold Messner says there is no mountaineering without risk. Slovak filmmaker Pavol Barabaš restored a film about the 1988 ascent of the southwestern wall of Dhaulagiri, a 16-day circular route from the era of heroic mountaineering. The youngest branch of Alpine climbing, sport climbing, made its Olympic debut in 2020.
The festival will premiere the documentary The Wall – Climb for Gold, an Olympic story of four elite climbers, Janja Garnbret, Shauna Coxsey, Brooke Raboutou and Miha Nonaka. We will follow a puma mother and her cubs at the foot of the spectacular Patagonian mountains and search for snow leopards across the Tibetan plateau. Kamchatka is home to the smallest ethnic group in the world – the Kereks. According to the latest census, only four people live there. The Red House seeks to offer the last ice hunters – Eastern Greenlandic Inuit – a gateway to slow tourism.


The accompanying programme includes lectures and mountain literature presentations.
