At picturesque Lake Tegernsee, this October puts mountains on the silver screen. The encounter of people and mountains takes centre stage: from bold athletic deeds to spectacular documentaries and moving portraits. Outside the screening venues, intimate charm and Bavarian lifestyle enchant film makers and mountain fans from around the world.
Representatives of numerous mountain film festivals flocked to Tegernsee in the autumn of 2019 during the International Alliance for Mountain Film’s gathering, demonstrating clearly that this specific cinematic genre fascinates people around the globe. Not only captivating images, strong protagonists and exciting storylines attract attention, but a special spirit reigns when the entire mountain community comes together – authors, cinematographers, producers, protagonists, mountain lovers, the young and the old.
