IVth Cervino International Film Festival


The IVth Cervino International Filmfestival gets underway in Cervinia today

The IVth Cervino International Filmfestival gets underway in Cervinia, Valle D’Aosta today and will finish on Sunday 29 July.

Born in 1998, this "Festival of Festivals" as it has come to be known sees the exclusive participation of those films which received awards in the world's most important Festivals of Mountain and Adventure.

The films in competition are judged by an International Jury which, in the last editions, was formed by high-profile personalities such as
Alberto Barbera, Director of the Mostra del Cinema in Venice, Mario Brenta, director of "Barnabo delle montagne" and follower of Ermanno Olmi's (another famous Italian filmmaker) school, Franco Prono, teacher of History of Cinema at DAMS, Turin, and Chairman of the Cinema Museum Association, Michael Dillon, Australian director, who made six films about Sir Edmund Hillary (the first climber to reach the Everest), Aldo Audisio, Director of the National Mountain Museum in Turin, with which our Festival cooperates since its first edition, Fulvio Mariani, Swiss alpinist and director, cameraman for "Cry of Stone" by Werner Herzog and "The Wooden Man", a portrait of Mauro Corona, climber and sculptor, who told us the Vajont tragedy, Kurt Diemberger, Austrian writer and the only living alpinist who can claim to have been the first to climb twice peaks higher than 8,000 meters, and many other names not less prestigious. Every year, also, our Rules require the presence of the Director of one International Festival.

Last year saw the creation of the International Alliance for Mountain Film, comprising the National Mountain Museum and 12 of the most important Mountain and Adventure Film Festivals in the world, with the aim of promoting and revaluing mountain cinematography, together with a serious commitment towards the restoration of the precious historical heritage of many film libraries which still "hide" footage of exceptional interest.
