Welcome to Kendal Mountain Festival
Presented by Blacks
Kendal Mountain Festival is the UK's premier mountain film festival. It is an award-winning and the most diverse event of its type in the world. Our vision is to inspire more people to explore, enjoy and represent mountains, wilderness and their cultures.
We host 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. We have thousands of visitors from home and overseas, hundreds of film screenings including high-profile premières plus plenty of special guests making this a must-do long weekend in The Lake District.
So please stay in touch, sign-up for our newsletter. Keep an eye on our website for the latest news for an exciting 2017!
