Enter the 2020 TMF – Mountain Film Competition NOW! Submit you adventure shorts, mountain feature and mountain documentaries.

The TMF MOUNTAIN FILM COMPETITON & AWARD is a special project of TRANSYLVANIA MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL. This year’s key theme – VERTICAL STORIES – is an open invitation for YOU to share your vertical experiences, your alpine adventures and your explorations with an untamed audience, always looking for more inspiration.

At TRANSYLVANIA MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL, we are out to explore, to discover, to innovate and engage in audacious projects. Verticality encounters many stages and can lead us from the summits until the ocean’s bottom – it is only a matter of perspective.

On February 19, 2020 we have officially launched the 2020 Transylvania Mountain Film Competition via the FilmFreeway platform and we are happy to count new submissions each week. Enter the 2020 TMF – Mountain Film Competition now!

Founded in 2018, Transylvania Mountain Film Award was created to encourage filmmakers and mountain sports athletes – climbers, skiers, snowboarders, paragliders, bikers, cavers, runners, kayakists – and mountain nature observers and explorers to co-create original film/video productions. Yes it is a hectic work, but also with fantastic results!

In 2020 your film can compete in the following categories:

  1. Mountain Adventure Shorts – (20 min.) – where vertical adventures from mountaineering, skiing, caving, deep solo voiding or other are welcome!
  2. Mountain Feature Film –(40 – 75 min.) – where we invite you to explore the theme of verticality from a more artistic perspective: the blend between the choice of topic, of scenery and protagonist, narrative line and creativity will make the difference.
  3. Mountain Documentary – (40 – 75 min.) – is the category where we invite mountain sport, landscape and wild life documentarists to embark in the beautiful journey of bringing the stories to the audience.
