IAMF

The International Alliance for Mountain Film

The International Alliance for Mountain Film (IAMF) was instituted to promote, enhance and conserve mountain cinematography through communal projects that would flank or be incorporated into the regular institutional activities of the member bodies.

In 2008, KIMFF became a member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film (IAMF), which today is a network of 22 members, with 21 mountain film festivals and a museum, which represent 17 countries of Europe, Asia, and North and South America.

Over the years the IAMF has been presented in a number of communal events, while important exchanges of collaboration and meetings have occurred.

Along its shared path, the IAMF, which includes the most prestigious operators in the sector among its Members, has successfully made a name for itself and has become the main reference point for those who produce, make, promote and conserve mountain film.
