The Pertex Film Awards Ceremony

The 'Oscars' of Mountain Film

For are delighted that this year we have moved our prestigious award ceremony - our ‘Oscars’ of mountain film to the Basecamp Stage, giving more of you the chance to join in and get up close with the filmmakers and athletes.
Our jury chairman, Keme Nzerem and panel of judges will talk you through their decision making and reveal the winners of our film prizes. 

One of our filmmakers attending, sent us her thoughts when asked what she was most looking forward to when visiting the Festival this year.

"I've had the honour of having several films in Kendal and have never been able to attend and I've heard such wonderful things about the Festival. I love seeing my friends who are scattered around the globe at festivals. Hearing about all of the hard work they are doing gives me hope and reminds me that there are a lot of people fighting for the climate, our open spaces and 'playgrounds' as well as the habitats and wildlife. I refill my energy reserves at festivals because of our amazing community made up of photographers, writers, artists, activists, conveners, and of course filmmakers. Can't wait!”

We can’t wait either - with a DJ setting the scene, the bar open and over 50 filmmakers present at the Festival this year we know that the energy will be high to find out which films have caught our judges' eye.

We'll also be announcing the winner of our photography competition, presented by Heart of the Lakes.

We're delighted to have Pennington's Spirits supporting our Award Ceremony. 

Entrance is free but space is limited so arrive early to avoid disappointment!

Please note that there is an industry event straight after the awards and the Basecamp Tent will be closed at 9pm.
