Dedicated to exploring and presenting various facets of mountain culture, the Mountain Film Festival was established in 2007. Since then, it has been running a strong international program that encompasses various films about mountain sports (mountaineering, mountain running, B.A.S.E jumping, etc.), different types of climbing (from bouldering to ice climbing), mountain wildlife, and the lives of indigenous mountain dwellers, among other topics. Since its inception, the festival has been led by its founder, the legendary mountaineer Silvo Karo.

Over the years, the festival has grown to the point where it is now comparable to the biggest and most important mountain film festivals worldwide. In 2010, the Mountain Film Festival became a member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film.

Venues

The festival is produced by Društvo za gorsko kulturo (Society for Mountain Culture) and co-produced by Cankarjev dom, where most of the festival's events occur. However, screenings tend to take place all over Slovenia, with some of the venues being the Franc Bernik Culture House, Domžale, Mestni kino Domžale, Art kino Metropol Celje and Kino Radolca.

Sections and awards

The festival's film programme has 4 main categories: Mountaineering; Climbing; Mountains, sports and adventure; Mountain nature and culture; and (sometimes) Retrospective. In each of these categories (excluding Retrospective) the best film is chosen and awarded by the international jury, which also awards the best short film prize. There are also awards given by the Mountaineering Association of Slovenia and Radio-Television Slovenia (RTV Slovenia), as well as the Viewer's Choice award, selected by the audience.

Accompanying Programme

The festival does not limit itself to films only, but also hosts lectures (featuring prominent guests from the international climbing community like Dean Potter, Adam Ondra, Lynn Hill, Chris Bonington, Kurt Diemberger and many others), exhibitions, round tables, book presentations and a children's programme. As such it is striving to enrich the way mountaineering culture is perceived and represented.
