Mountains On Stage tour starts. What films are on offer this year & where can you see them in the UK?

Dates and films for the 2018 winter edition of Mountains on Stage have been announced.

There are five new cities and four new films over a total of 14 dates in November and December.

Here at PlanetSKI we can't wait.

For the first time, the festival will visit Belfast, Dublin, Galway and Cork as well as Sheffield, with a new additional date added in London.

The cities of Liverpool, Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Southampton also feature on the itinerary that starts on Monday 19th November and ends on Friday 7th December.

Four films have been selected for this year's festival.

They vary in length from 5 to 80 minutes - all showcasing the very best in filmmaking from the Alps to the Himalayas to the Azores and Brazil.

If this doesnt whet your appetite then nothing will:

The full line-up includes:


The legendary runner, Kilian Jornet faces the highest mountain on earth.

The film ‘Path to Everest' is an adventure with ups and downs, deep sadness and beautiful joy.

Directors: Josep Serra Mateu and Sébastien Montaz-Rosset - Length: 80 minutes (Subtitled original version)


Taking part in Olympic Games, becoming Freeride World Champion, skiing the Eiger - Eva Walkner and Jackie Paaso are high achievers.

But their dreams occasionally clash with the reality and hazards that life brings.

An intense movie that will make you wish you could get your skis back on straight after.

Directors: Carina Brunnauer, Eva Walkner and Jackie Paaso. Length: 26 minutes (Subtitled original version)


Zabardast is the travel diary of a 5-week, self-sufficient, expedition in the heart of Pakistan at over 5,000 metres in altitude with Léo Taillefer, Thomas Delfino, Zak Mills, Hélias Millerioux and Yannick Graziani.

It's a project that combines mountaineering and freeride skiing, but also a wonderful human adventure in an astonishing landscape.

Director: Jérôme Tanon. Length: 50 minutes (Subtitled original version)


Is Jean-Baptiste Chandelier a man or a bird?

Not easy to say as this paraglider plays with gravity - his humour and weightlessness seen over a Brazilian beach, a ski slope or an Azores volcano.

His wing twists and his creativity have no limits.

Director: Jean-Baptiste Chandelier. Length: 5 minutes (Subtitled original version)
