The scenic valley of Tegernsee, with its lake nestled at the foot of picturesque mountains, will for the ninth time host the annual Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival in October 2012. This festival is supported by the ‘Deutscher Alpenverein’ (German Alpine Club), ‘Bayerischer Rundfunk’ (Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation) and ‘Tegernseer Tal Tourismus GmbH’.
The patron of the event is Dr. Heiner Geissler, former secretary for youth, family and health in Germany – who has been an active alpinist for decades.

The festival’s premiere in 2003 and its annual repeats have been attracting entries from around the world. In 2011, nearly 6000 guests were able to enjoy them.
