A good overview of the main mountain film festivals in the Alps is provided by a new brochure on "Mountain Film Festivals in the Alps" published by the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention. The brochure includes fifteen film festivals, many of which were involved in founding the International Alliance for Mountain Film in 2000 as a platform for promoting the members' respective events. In addition to a short historical introduction, the brochure lists the themes, special features and supporting programmes of the various film festivals.
The purpose of the compilation is to stress the common cultural identity of the Alpine space beyond all national borders. "As an element of the rich cultural heritage of the Alps, film festivals attract thousands of people and in so doing play a key role in cultural exchange and dissemination," says Marco Onida, Secretary General of the Alpine Convention, in the foreword to the brochure.
