NZMFF Point of Difference
The NZ Mountain Film Festival is a NZ made festival which started in 2002 and is internationally recognised as one of the world’s premier mountain film festival events. It’s NZ’s original mountain film festival with it’s own international adventure film maker’s competition, as well as a highly regarded NZ made division. Film makers receive cash for various awards and the films we play often go on to do well in other similar festivals like the Banff Mountain Film Festival, Sundance Mountain Film Festival, Kendal Mountain Film Festival and Vancouver Mountain Film Festival.
The NZMFF puts on a national tour, as do many of the above festivals. You will sometimes see the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour playing in venues around NZ. Try not to confuse this Canadian made festival with our NZ made one.
The NZ Mountain Film Festival is a grass roots event with guest speakers and several other events in Wanaka and Queenstown. Come check us out….
