Press Release - Call for Submissions                                     02/May3rd,2012


10th Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival, 17-21 October 2012

Trademark Tegernsee – apply now!

Four weeks remain for producers to hand in their latest mountain films to compete at the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival’s 10th Anniversary. A unique opportunity for any filmmaker to present their latest work to a broad audience – as well as to potential partners!

The Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival is not only a favourite with viewers. By now, it has established itself as a strong trademark in the mountain film scene. ‘Anyone who can point to success in Tegernsee will see formerly hermetically closed doors swing open. That is definitely something we have witnessed in the past,’ the festival’s director Michael Pause (Bavarian Broadcasting) is happy to say – and this aspect is particularly appealing for young filmmakers. ‘Without a doubt, the Mountain Film Festival has become an important networking platform where mountaineers, producers and directors can get to know each other and keep in touch.’ This is especially true for the anniversary event in October – already, many well-known names have appeared on the guest list. ‘We count on producers to submit their very best productions for the 10th anniversary festival and on being able to assemble a first-rate programme,’ Pause states.
A look back is equally exciting: on two evenings, winning films from past years will be screened. ‘This demonstrates the diversity and astonishing quality of the mountain films that have been running in the Tegernsee competition,’ explains Michael Pause. ‘It provides an impressive CV, listing the achievements of the Tegernsee festival in the past 10 years. And that is why anyone currently sitting on some special footage should grab this chance and send it in straight away.’


Entry deadline is 31 May 2012. The 10th Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival programme will be available from mid-August.
