If its geographical location at an altitude of over 2000 m means it merits the title of the highest Festival in the world, then the nature of its programme and its aims, means it deserves recognition, together with the Festival di Trento, as the most important event in Italy dedicated to mountain cinema. Ever since the first edition in 1998, mountains have always played the leading part, although the mountains have also become a “pretext” for addressing other related issues: the environment, climate, adventure, sport, culture and history.
Also in this edition, the jury of the competition will award the Grand Prix des Festivals, the “Mountain Cinema Oscar”, to one of the winning films of international festivals, coming from the circuit of the International Alliance for Mountain Film. The selected works represent the best of the world mountain cinema production of the last two years.
And then there are the other films in competition in the various categories that offer an all-round look at contemporary mountain cinema, a unique opportunity to discover the best international works in recent months.
