Dear Mountain Film Community,

Here we go again! Can you hear the call of the mountains?

Preparations for the 21st Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival have already begun. This is our moment to invite all authors, directors and producers to submit their latest mountain films to our competition.

Short films or cinematic formats, documentaries, reports, portraits, animated and feature films – the mountain film genre knows many formats! Our thematic spectrum includes alpine sports and adventure, mountain life and culture as well as the big issues of nature and ecology. In addition to the main prizes, we award the best children’s film.

Simply register your films online on our homepage or via the International Alliance for Mountain Film’s multi-submission-form.

Registration deadline is 31st May 2024.

Detailed information and the call for submissions (“Rules & Regulations”)

If you have any questions, please contact the festival office team at any point in time.



Awards Ceremony 2023

The highlight of every film festival is when the winners are announced. Not everyone has the possibility to be in the theatre at the awards-presentation. Bayerischer Rundfunk, the festival’s sponsor, recorded the award ceremony. You can see the awards ceremony 2023 here…


Mountain Film Festival

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.


Excitement, Encounters and the Best Mountain Films

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.
