'The Lighthouse' Poster of the 10th edition of BMFF


'The Lighthouse' of the German photographer Christoph Jorda is the image of the poster of the 10th edition of the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival which will be held from 8 to 17 December.

Christoph Jorda has received the prize during the Award Ceremony of CVCEPHOTO 3rd edition, International photo contest of mountain activity organized by the Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea from San Sebastian (Basque Country – Spain). Jabier Baraiazarra, director of the BMFF, delivered the prize to Christoph Jorda.

'The Lighthouse' is a picture in which the tallest lighthouse in the world is the ‘highlight’. It is located at Overalp Pass, a mountain passage in the Swiss Alps, 2.046 meters above the sea level. This lighthouse was built to promote the area of the source of the Rhine, the most used waterway in Europe, which crosses Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France and flows into the Netherlands.

Introduction of ‘The Lightohouse’ by author Christoph Jorda:

I had the great honor to spent a week in the swiss alps with the Salmon Freeski Team Germany. Unfortunately the weather was really bad and the avalanche risk to high. So I had to come up with an idea and solve this problem with creativity. Sometimes a disadvantage is a benefit. The highest standing lighthouse on earth (2046m above sea level) stands at the Oberalp Pass in Switzerland. This lighthouse stands at the spring of the river Rhein. The counterpart of it stands in Holland where the Rhein floats into the sea. It took 6 people the whole day to build a jump, landing and inrun for this photo. I had three Profoto B1 flasheads with me. Two inside of the lighthouse and one in the back of it. The jump was really dangerous - the strong wind and bad visibility-. Rider: Sebastian Scheck (22, GER)
