The Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival is an independent film festival screening some of the latest films for outdoor enthusiasts, whether they are climbers, skiers or snowboarders, kayakers, BASE jumpers or explorers.

The festival launched in 2003 and is an annual event in Edinburgh, attracting up to 3,000 people for films, talks, and a party.

The festival opens on Saturday afternoon with a screening of short climbing films, and a talk by guest speaker, top Scottish Winter climber Greg Boswell.

Free solo climber, base jumper and wingsuit flier Steph Davis presents Saturday Night Extreme in the first day's evening session.

The afternoon session on Sunday is with Luke Robertson, an Edinburgh-based adventurer, who has not been held back by having a pacemaker fitted and emergency brain surgery.

Amputee climber and adventurer Jamie Andrew rounds of the festival in the afternoon session.
