The Kendal x Kailas Grant is for a documentary film of up to 30 minutes exploring ‘Mountain Spirit’, to be made between April 24 and September 24, and premiered at Kendal Mountain Festival November 2024.

Kendal and Kailas celebrate Mountains as the test-field and dreamland for humans to push their mental and physical limits. This project is to fund filmmakers to go into the world-wide mountain ranges and tell expedition and adventure stories.

We are specifically looking for original and imaginative filmmaking, and stories of joy and freedom in the mountains.
