The Dundee Mountain Film Festival is the UK’s longest continuous running mountain film festival. It showcases an international programme of speakers, as well as award winning films and exhibitions, mainly held in the Bonar Hall, Dundee. We also have a full supporting exhibition of art, photography, trade and voluntary organisations stands and displays.
This year’s festival will be held on 22 – 24 November 2018.
Thanks to Kelvin Trautman for allowing us to use his photograph of Jenny Tough running above Loch Ness for our brochure front page and poster, and to Jenny Tough for arranging this.
The Banff Intro!
We know how you all love the Banff World Tour Intro, so here it is below. Note that there are about 40 films on tour and we are only showing 13, so there will be some scenes in this intro that are not representative of our film selection! When the film starts, click on the “Full Screen” button (bottom right) for the best effect.

In 1993, the 40th Anniversary of the first ascent of Mountain Everest, Irvine Butterfield arranged that two one gallon whisky casks were taken up to Everest Base Camp, and on return the casks were used to finish a fine malt whisky. One of the casks was a premier display item at the 2002 Dundee Mountain Film Festival, the 20th anniversary year of the Festival. In celebration of this anniversary, two 70cl bottles of the finished malt were prepared, uniquely labelled, and presented to the Festival. In addition, to add to the 20th anniversary celebration, Doug Scott, who was the main speaker at the event, signed the labels on the bottles
One of these unique bottles will be Silent Auctioned at the 36th Festival (2018), with bids being placed on the 23rd and 24th of November.

Films from the Past
Missed some films in 2017? You can watch some of them here. There are also other films which we have not shown that we think you may enjoy.
It is fascinating to look back over the old programmes to see how we have progressed from the formats of film, to video, to DVD and now digital. To reminisce over films and speakers from the past. To be amazed and amused at the old advertisements for equipment and shops.
We invite potential sponsors to discuss participation in our exciting film festival. You can download a sponsorship pack here.
