Final call for film submissions!

The deadline for the film competition is September 12th 2018.

This year our Festival theme is CONNECTION.

We are looking for stories and snapshots that connects our audience to new worlds, unexpected adventures, characters we would never meet; were it not for you. We want to find that moment when the mind and body unite in flow, when you and your partner are in sync, when a summit pulls you into the past to share a second with history’s mountaineers.

Kendal Mountain Festival brings storytellers, explorers and artists together to ‘Share the Adventure’, in the hope that if we empathise with each other, we can better work together for a sustainable future. This means we are welcoming content from all corners; please encourage those around you to submit their ideas. Bring us those films you might not think we would screen. Give us an adventure!

The Festival also is committed for better representation within the world of outdoor and especially from the UK. We believe that imagery inspires so we wish to reflect our vision of our future adventures on screen today to encourage participation and play regardless of gender, ethnicity or background.

The competition gives 12 cash awards from a 4 strong international jury, this year includes Keme Nzreme, Sports Correspondent; Ian Durkin, Senior Curator at Vimeo; Maria Coffey, renowned adventure author and guide; and Brian Hall, Kendal Mountain Festival Founder and mountain filmmaker.

The deadline for the film competition is September 12th 2018.
