Mountains on Stage returns to the UK following its successful launch in 2016 and adds three new cities to the schedule. With nine cities in total, starting with London on November 27, the festival will screen six films that are inspired by skiers, snowboarders and mountaineers.
The films are all inspired by experienced in the mountains and range from four to fifty minutes in length.

Full Film Details

Ueli Steck Tribute
Ueli Steck was one of the best mountaineers of his generation. Last May, he disappeared on Nuptse, in the Himalayas. Mountains on Stage wished to follow him one last time, in a film tribute including some of his most beautiful sequences as a mountaineer.
Length: 5 minutes

Ya Mas – Snowmads in Greece
Freeride skiing in Greece. Fabian Lentsch and his team reveal a new path in regions that don’t appear on any freeride map yet. Deep powder in Parnassos, incredible skiing lines in Kalavitra, conquest of the Mount-Olympus. A good old road trip to inspire your next adventure.
Length: 15 minutes

Marco, Shooting Star
Marco Siffredi was born and raised in Chamonix, but the Mont-Blanc massif soon became a playground too small for him. From Peru to Everest, Marco made history and this film immortalizes his snowboarding exploits but also his unique larger than life personality.
Length: 52 minutes

This is Home, Candide Thovex and Henry Sildaru
A short but intense film is like a handover between the legend Candide Thovex and the young Henry Sildaru, who is just ten years old. This magic pursuit race shows us that “king Candide” can be confident in the next generation’s ability to take the baton.
Length: 4 minutes

Waking Dream
Possibly the most beautiful skiing you will see this season. Sam Favret and Julien Herry rip the steepest lines around Chamonix as if it was just another freeride run. Except that falling on the exposed faces is not an option.
Length: 26 minutes

Riso Patron
This film is proof that adventure still exists. Jérome Sullivan, Lise Billon, Diego Simari, Martin Elias and Antoine Moineville made a crazy bet by trying the ascent of Riso Patron, a mountain lost in Chilean Patagonia and deemed impossible. An expedition to the ends of the earth honoured by the most prestigious reward of mountaineering: the “Piolets d’Or”.
Length: 50 minutes
