The EMFF is now seeking film submissions for
the next festival.
We are delighted to announce that there will be a £250 prize
for the Tiso 'Best Film' Award, as judged by our panel of experts. There
will also be a £150 prize for the Alien Rock Best Short Film
(must be less than 15 mins) and a prize for the People's Choice Award.
The closing date
for entries for the next EMFF is 31 July 2013. Early entries
are always appreciated!
Films can focus on any aspect of mountain life
and culture, wilderness and adventure, and can be documentary or fiction.
We are especially interested in films focussing on all forms of climbing,
snowboarding, skiing, snowblading, mountain biking, BASE jumping, kayaking,
surfing, BMX-ing, sea kayaking, canoeing ... the list goes on.
Films do not need to be high budget action films! Any film depicting
the adventure and spirit of the mountains or of nature will be considered.
All films selected for screening are automatically entered into the
competition for the 'Best Film Award'.
The EMFF regularly attracts over 100 entries, with films coming from
as far away as Alaska, Bhutan and South Africa, as well as Aviemore,
East Lothian and Leith. Only 20-25 films are screened so competition
is high but we are always glad to receive entries and are happy to offer
feedback on request.
