The NZ Mountain Film Festival is a competitive event bringing the best adventure films from around the world to the alpine village of Wanaka, Aotearoa New Zealand. The subject matter criteria is extremely broad; as long as there is a link with adventurous sports or people and the film is set in the world's mountains, lakes, rivers, oceans or skies, the film will meet the theme! The Grand Prize is $US500 (about NZ$700), while the prize for Best NZ-made Film is $2,500!

Go on - be adventurous!

Festival dates: June 25 to July 3 , 2021

Deadline for submissions: 30 April, 2021
