There is so much going on I can't detail it all here, but what really stood out to me was 'The Modern Face of Everest'. Kenton Cool and climber/film-maker Matt Dickinson will join Dave MacLeod to discuss the "Ethics of today's Everest" - now that sounds exciting.
Coming next is the Sheffield festival, ShAFF (29th Feb - March 2nd). As well as top films, ShAFF is featuring appearances from many top names, including; Ian Parnell, Joe Simpson and Niall Grimes. For those who prefer climbing to watching, the Climbing Works will be holding the International Masters Bouldering Competition and also a huge party free to ShAFF ticket holders.
Perhaps the most underground of all the Mountain Film Festivals is LLAMFF, (7th - 9th March) the dark, mysterious cousin of the other events. This brooding image is enhanced by the stark black and white imagery featured on the LLAMFF website and posters. With a strong line up including; Andy Cave, Leo Dickinson, Nick Bullock and Tim Emmett, this will also be a weekend to remember.
