2018 Best of NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour comes to Wellington

The best of the New Zealand Mountain Film Festival National Tour is coming back to Wellington and this time we have a double feature!

The festival started in 2002 and is internationally recognised as one of the world’s premier mountain film festival events. It’s NZ’s original mountain film festival with an international adventure film maker’s competition, as well as a highly regarded NZ made division. Wellington will be screening both the best of the festival and award winning kiwi made films.

We’ve teamed up with the Victoria University of Wellington Tramping Club to organise and host the screenings in Wellington.

The films will be screened at the Victoria University Memorial Theatre. Last year we sold out with just over 300 people attending each night, raising nearly $10,000 to support the clubs. We’re hoping to achieve that goal again. All profits are donated back to the clubs to support members going on awesome trips, gaining instruction and getting out in the moutains. Tickets are $20 general admission; $15 WTMC and VUWTC club members and $10 student with ID.
