Grand anniversary in 2023

The International Mountain Film Festival turns 20 this year! The cinematic thrills on offer at Germany’s only open mountain film competition will be chosen in the moment.

In addition to the most engaging films, the festival programme will include a variety of special anniversary features.

Hardly any other backdrop could be more suited to a film festival that revolves around the mountains than pre-Alpine Lake Tegernsee. .” In addition to a high class programme, prominent guests from the German mountaineering scene such as Robert Jasper and David Göttler will be present. 

As exciting as the films is the question which productions will snatch an award at the festive closing ceremony hosted at Tegernsee Castle. As always, the international jury will scrutinise each film carefully in order to award prizes to the best.

Welcome at Tegernsee from 18th to 22nd October 2023!


Awards Ceremony 2022

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.
