The KAILAS Mountain Film Development Project

We are delighted to invite filmmakers across the globe to apply for up to £20,000 for a new film commissioning project in partnership with Kailas.

We are looking for a pure-outdoor film, focusing on core sports in Mountain Terrain. Your characters might explore by foot, bike, kite, axe or rope. They will be innovative, adventurous stories that express ‘Mountain Spirit’.

Do you have a dynamic approach to capturing adventures in the mountains?

Do you have a connection to the team that’s going to cut the edge of their sport this year?

Or do you have a new perspective, a refreshing protagonist, an unexplored line of any kind through the mountains.
