Mountains and Cultures Trento Film Festival

Trento, Italy
From: 27.04.2019 to: 05.05.2019

The 67th edition of the oldest international film festival dedicated to the mountains, adventure and exploration will take place from 27 April to 5 May in Trento, Italy.

Since 1952, the Trento Film Festival has interwoven has combined the history of the mountains and climbing, and made into a genuine workshop that explores the cultures of the highest lands on earth, constantly ready to investigate changes in ways of experiencing the mountains and adventure.

Set up as the 1st International Alpine Film Competition and representing an appendix to the 64th national conference of CAI, in 1955 it officially became a Festival, and an exploration category was added, to then extend its range of action once again in 1989, when it was renamed the International Mountain, Exploration and Adventure Film Festival.

This year the title of the Trento Film Festival will be more concise and summarises the “manifesto” of the festival in two words: Mountains and Cultures.

“Two words that represent the cornerstones of the Festival: not by chance in the plural form”, underlines Mauro Leveghi, President of the Festival. “The mountains have indeed always had a wealth of meanings and have also represented a place that was experienced, encountered and crossed in many different ways. The Festival has been and is intended to be a space where this diversity finds a home and is recounted, using every possible instrument, language and form of artistic expression.”
