Bergfilm Tegernsee, 16th International Festival from 17 – 21 October 2018

The Courage to Make Images Impact 

Amazement and enjoyment, compassion and thoughtfulness — mountain films cater the entire range, from thriller to quiet art enjoyment. The list of winning films from the past 15 Tegernsee Mountain Film Festivals demonstrates this amply, and mountain film makers of the 2018 Festival shall render further evidence.

Submit new productions now!

More than 1400 “Call for Entries” were sent all over the world. Until end of May film makers can submit their latest productions from the high-contrast world of the mountains. Only films that were produced after 2015 are accepted into the competition, whose three main categories aim at different thematic aspects of mountain film. The category Mountain Experience puts alpinism and sportive encounters with the mountains centre stage. The best film in this category will be awarded the Prize by the German Alpine Club (Deutscher Alpenverein). Landscape portraits and inquiries into environmental issues are the focus of the category Mountain Nature, whose prize is awarded by the Festival’s main sponsor “bergzeit”. The third category, Mountain Life, looks for films that take stock of ethnological and cultural aspects in the encounter between people and mountains. The best film across all categories will be awarded the Great Prize of the City of Tegernsee (worth 3,000 euros). The most outstanding junior film maker (under the age of 32) will receive the Otto Guggenbichler Prize, named after the Mountain Film Festival’s founder. Finally, viewers vote for the “Audience Prize” (worth 1,000 euros).
