”Mountains, People, Adventure“ Film Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary in St. Anton am Arlberg in late summer this year. The international mountaineering elite will convene in St. Anton am Arlberg from 28th to 31st August 2019 to offer an exciting insight into expeditions that have taken place around the globe.
A total of 20 screenings will be made, twelve of them premieres. St. Anton Film Festival has firmly established itself as a hot spot for the outdoor film scene over the past 25 years.
The atmosphere of a professional major event combined with a family atmosphere impresses guests and locals time and again, with the festival garnering record numbers of visitors last year. In addition to films with fascinating imagery, international endurance athletes, directors and impressive personalities talk live about their experiences and adventures and comment on their films. The entertainment begins each evening at 20 hrs.
