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 free Schools program sponsored by the Federated Mountain Clubs of NZ. This means any school can apply for a free DVD of films to be shown at school, during school hours.  For more information, or to apply for a free DVD, visit the School Tour page on the FMC website.

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.
