Four action packed days and over 70 films, the Kendal Mountain Festival will showcase the very best films from around the world in adventure filmmaking, mountain culture, environment and exploration. 


At the heart of Kendal’s rich programme is the International Film Competition, attracting premières from around the world – it has been called the 'Oscars of outdoor filmmaking'. Over 70 films are screened (from 200+ entries) with eleven coveted awards up for grabs. However KMF is not all extreme action - you can experience culture, drama, wildlife and environmental documentaries, plus the world's largest lecture programme covering outdoor content. 

Other highlights include art exhibitions, book events, including the coveted Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature and the ever popular 'Kendal Mountain Film Academy'.  The inaugural 2014 'Filmmaking Summit' (supported by Channel 4 TV) welcomed 200+ industry professionals to an insightful programme of new debate and presentations. The packed 'Specialist Sessions' are now legendary and provide a core social gathering for the following categories – Climb, Bike, Snowsports, Endurance Sports, Free-Flight, Underground (Cave) and Adventure & Exploration. They really are events within the event!
