The annual St. Anton Mountain Film Festival is a must-do event for outdoor and movie enthusiasts each year in August, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary.
Now in its 25th year, the International Mountain Film Festival has been bringing socially conscious, environmentally aware, and outdoor adventure films to St. Anton am Arlberg since 1994. In 2019, 18 new productions will be screened over the four days, including various film premières. The acclaimed annual festival at the Arlberg-well.com hosts a highly respected international film competition, a packed lecture programme of guest speakers, filmmakers and athletes and crucially it’s the main social gathering for outdoor enthusiasts in the Austrian Tirol. “Mountain, Man, Adventure” has hundreds of visitors from around the globe watching new film productions. Many film screenings include high-profile premières plus plenty of special guests, such as Alpinists Michi Wohlleben and Robert Jasper, Freeride World Champions Manuela Mandl and Nadine Wallner, Ice Climbing World Champion Angelika Rainer and mountaineer Tom Belz, who lost his entire left leg due to bone cancer at the age of eight.
The festival draws to a close on August 31, 2019 with the presentation of the 2019 Film Competition Winners.
