Kendal Mountain Festival

The Kendal Mountain Festival (also known as the Kendal Mountain Film Festival) is an annual festival held in the town of Kendal, England, in the third week of November "to celebrate mountain culture in film, lectures, art and literature".[1] The British Mountaineering Council states that it "is by far the largest and most varied event of its type in Europe and it's the main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK."[2]

The main event at the festival is the mountain film competition, which features the premieres of over 50 films selected from 200 films by filmmakers from all over the world.[3][2] Ten prizes are awarded.[2]

The winner of the annual Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature is also announced at the festival.[3]
