Introducing ‘Share Your Movement’

A new Film Category supported by YETI

Grab your smartphone, no experience required…

Film is the beating heart of our Festival and each year we scout and curate incredible films showcasing the outdoors through the eyes of filmmakers across the world.

Now, with smartphones in pockets, we all have the means to capture our own experience of the outdoors and we want to see your story!

We're aiming to widen the definition of ‘adventure’ storytelling and are inviting submissions of short films up to 5 minutes from anyone and everyone for a brand new film competition category, supported by YETI.

Get creative and capture your moment of movement within the outdoors. Do you love to walk, climb, skate, forest bath, ride or paddle? Do gnarly crags, heather-topped moors, urban trails or dappled sun-lit woodlands set your soul alive? Capture your adventures and you could see ‘Your Movement’ on the big screen at our 2021 Festival.

Top prizes to be won…

The winner of this new film category will:

  • Have their film shown as part of Kendal Mountain Festival 2021
  • Receive £200 and Festival trophy
  • An incredible £500 worth of YETI kit to fuel future adventures!

A shortlist of the best films will play on the Kendal Mountain Festival YouTube channel a month before the Festival and a selection of these will then be shown at the 2021 Festival with the winner announced at the Film Awards Ceremony.
