National Film Tour

National Film Tour

The NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour takes award winning films to audiences around the NZ immediately after the Wanaka festival ends in July. A selection of the films are available for screenings in your town.

We also have a new free Schools programme for 2017 supported by the Federated Mountain Clubs. This means you can put on a free show in your local school when doing a National Tour screening. Contact us for details or check out the Schools Tour information on the FMC site, here.

Hosts in regions around the country choose a programme that reflects the interests of their local audiences from a selection of films on adventure, culture, environment and action sports. Contact us if you wish to host an event in your town or read the National Tour FAQ.
