The kimff team is pleased to announce the 21 st edition of the Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (kimff) which takes place from May 29 – June 2, 2024 in Kathmandu, the cultural and cosmopolitan heart of the Himalayan region and recognized as a Creative City of Film by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Since 2000, kimff has featured a diverse array of films from around the world, focusing on mountain communities and cultures. The festival has screened hundreds of films and facilitated discussions addressing a range of issues, from the political resilience of mountain communities to the rise of identity politics in adventure sports, and the impacts of climate change on highland regions. The festival now showcases a spectrum of documentaries, feature films, adventure cinema, experimental shorts, anthropological narratives and animation from the Himalayan region as well as other parts of the world. It spotlights films of human interest and exceptional uniqueness, to foster a culture of creativity and original storytelling in line with kimff’s mission of ‘Bridging Cultures and Societies through the Power of Story’.
kimff is organized by the KIMFF Foundation, a private, not-for-profit sharing company dedicated to cultivating an informed, dynamic and resilient Nepali society.
We invite you to submit your films created in the last two years for kimff 2024.
