Kendal Mountain Festival

Kendal Mountain Festival

After welcoming over 14,500 visitors, hosting 100+ filmmakers and media and enjoying the company of a truly remarkable collection of guest speakers, the main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK is back for 2016.

Offering largest and most varied programme in its 30+ year history, the 2016 Kendal Mountain Festival will, this year, feature hundreds of film screenings including a number of high-profile premieres.

Celebrating both the well documented and lesser-known feats of adventure, endurance and exploration the Kendal team have worked hard to curate the very best and most entertaining schedule of speakers to accompany the films at this years’ festival. Headliners for 2016 include Alex Megos, the 20-year-old superstar of modern climbing, Cedar Wright a US climber and filmmaker who’s travelled the world making daring first ascents.

The social hub of the event, an enlarged Basecamp Village will be brimming and buzzing all weekend with the Sidetracked Cafe & Bar providing refreshments alongside a programme of free performances on the mini stage. For those looking to bring the adventure to life and explore the outskirts of Kendal, a 10K trail run climbing above the town is open to all.

The perfect environment for those making their first steps into the world of outdoor filmography and photography, The Kendal Mountain Film Academy provides the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to bring stories of adventure and exploration to life, delivered by industry experts, storytellers and professional tutors. Leading photographers will also exhibit their work in various spaces in and around each of the venues.
The 2016 Kendal Mountain Festival promises to be another unmissable year. Running from 17-20 November with film tickets already on sale. For more information, contact henry@canoeinc.com
