21st Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival, 16 to 20 October 2024

LOWA to be main sponsor of the Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival until at least 2026

In 2023, the renowned manufacturer of hiking and mountaineering boots LOWA first became main sponsor of the Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival. The cooperation has just been extended to last another three years.

The Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival’s new Director is Tom Dauer; and he is delighted by this extension of the mountain boot manufacturer’s commitment to the festival until 2026: “As a traditional alpine shoemaker based in Upper Bavaria, LOWA is a perfect fit for our festival. There has always been a creative connection between filmmakers and extreme mountaineers. Take for example Robert Jasper, who is part of the LOWA PRO team and who will be represented at the Tegernsee festival with his current film “Summit Love”. The most recent contribution to the mountain film festival by Stefan Glowacz and Philipp Hans was their film “Wallride”. As it happens, they also maintain close ties to LOWA. Tom Dauer explains: “The LOWA company, mountain athletes and film festival hosts relate to the same environment. We appeal to the same people, have the same goals and share the same passion. Our overlap is experiencing the mountains and watching films together. The way I see it, it’s the ideal partnership.”

LOWA Managing Director Alex Nicolai shares a similar perspective: “Out of love for nature and because of our passion for the perfect outdoor experience, we develop and produce shoes for all activities. In the same spirit, we look forward to great mountain films, exciting adventures and interesting encounters during the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival. Supporting the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival as its main sponsor is a heart-felt commitment.”

Since 1923, LOWA Sportschuhe Ltd. has been manufacturing mountain and hiking boots. It is one of the best-known outdoor brands across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The company, based in Jetzendorf in Upper Bavaria, produces almost exclusively in Europe. For the development of the shoes, it collaborates with renowned elite mountain sports pros such as Stefan Glowacz, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Hans Kammerlander, Ines Papert, Robert Jasper, Rudi Hauser and Simon Gietl.
