IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY FILM IS THE BEATING HEART OF OUR FESTIVAL

Settle down to watch one of our carefully curated film programmes on the big screen with us and you'll be transported to places beyond the wildest reaches of your imagination. Exploring exhilarating landscapes, inspirational relationships and profound journeys; film is a window through which we can all experience adventures big and small – from the epic first ascent of a mountain peak, to the calm solitude of a swim in a tarn, to an invigorating dark city run...

We've curated films from our 2019 Film Competition into incredible collections, below you can browse each film programme and book tickets to whichever session you choose.

You can also find our 2019 Special Film Screenings and Film Premieres listed below.

THANKS TO PERTEX

OUR FILM PROGRAMME PRESENTING PARTNER

If you're wearing a lightweight, high-performance windproof or waterproof mountain garment, there's a good chance it'll be constructed using Pertex fabrics. Founded in 1979 near Burnley, the company has steadily grown from humble beginnings into an iconic fabric technology brand, creating technical fabrics mainly used in garments and sleeping bags. Being so close to its outdoor users, Pertex has increasingly chosen to communicate stories through the medium of film. Its six-part series Elemental Journeys explores stories from people whose lives are defined by wild spaces and mountain adventures. At Kendal, we're proud that Pertex is the presenting sponsor of our International Film Competition.
