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.

Cervino Cinemountain Festival internazionale del film di montagna Breuil-Cervinia e Valtournenche, Italy

Since: 1998

The Festival, originally known as Cervino International Film Festival, was created in 1998 at Breuil-Cervinia, at the bottom of Mount Cervino (Matterhorn). Its original aim was to select and reward films that had already been awarded by others festivals.

Since then, the Festival has experienced significant modifications, which have culminated in a new designation and set up. Apart from its core activity (i.e. Film competition), the Festival offers other type of events such as publishing presentations and special events. Its peculiarity is the vocation of being an original cultural initiative dealing with mountain in a “glocal” and multilevel sense.
