Enjoy Wanaka's 18th Mountain Film & Book Festival

The NZ Mountain Film & Book Festival is on in Wanaka June 26 to 28

and will also be broadcasted online nationally.


NOTE: The COVID-19 virus has caused havoc in NZ and we plan to announce information on the programme in May. The Festival will go ahead in some format....!


The 18th NZ Mountain Film & Book Festival will be shorter than our regular 10 day event due to the COVID-19 virus. We've had to cancel the Queenstown and Cromwell shows. But we plan on presenting a range of films and guest speakers. Our films and books tell stories of adventure sports, foreign cultures, remote travel and environmental issues.

The reduced 3-day event is a celebration of adventurous sports and lifestyles presented for adventurers, film and book enthusiasts and armchair adventurers.

We are a non-profit charitable trust and a registered charity (#CC49344).
