The New Zealand Mountain Film Festival National Tour is coming to Wellington with a double feature! We'll be showing both the best of the festival and the award-winning NZ made films.
The festival started in 2002 and is internationally recognised as one of the world’s premier mountain film festival events. It's NZ’s original mountain film festival with an international adventure film maker’s competition, as well as a highly regarded NZ made a division.
The Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club and the Victoria University of Wellington Tramping Club have joined forces to bring the films to Wellington.
