Dutch Mountain Film Festival

Dutch Mountain Film Festival




Dutch Mountain Film Festival (DMFF) is an independent film festival with a diverse programme revolving around the theme of mountainfilm. The festival is intended for film fanatics, mountaineers and lovers of the outdoors. It also caters for those who like arthouse film or extreme sports . In addition to new and well-known mountain films, the festival will also have a varied programme of side events featuring music, art, food and sports. 
Following a trial in 2007, the festival proper started in Heerlen in 2011. The fifth edition in 2015 was attended by almost two thousand visitors from all over the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France and even South Korea. Initiators: Thijs Horbach, Toon Hezemans 

The 7th edition of the Dutch Mountain Film Festival will take place from 10 till 12 February, 2017 in Parkstad Limburg, the crossborder regio in the very south of Netherlands where the mountains begin.

The Dutch Mountain Film Festival has been a member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film (IAMF) since 2014.


The mountain film is one of the oldest genres and uses its own imagery. We are all familiar with its clichéd images:  death-defying panoramas of mountain ridges, glaciers and rock faces alternating with heart-stopping shots of fingers clawing for hand-holds, boots losing their footing and rocks breaking free. But the harsh mountain world is also portrayed for its symbolic and mythical significance. In this vertical wilderness, human resolve is confronted with all its deepest fears and vulnerabilities. The mountain film tells the story of man’s struggle with nature and records the stunning beauty of the untamed mountain world. The mountain film uses this world as its backdrop or metaphor for narrating the story of man’s confrontation with the unadulterated wilds.


Awards in the Dutch MountainFilm Festival competition 2017: 
• Crossborder DMFF Award (Grand Prix) €1,500 is the major prize (‘Grand Prix’ award) handed out at the Dutch MountainFilm Festival and is for the most artistic and original mountain film.

• Parkstad Limburg Jury Award is the special commendation of the jury
