IAMF Grand Prize 2018 was awarded to Kurt Diemberger

Trento (Italy), May 2nd 2018. An extremely important figure whose cinematographic career, in parallel to his mountaineering career, has always moved in innovative directions. The award was announced today during Trento Film Festival. The official awarding ceremony will take place during Mendi Film Festival 7-16 December 2018. 
Ever since the founding of the International Alliance for Mountain Film (IAMF) in February 2000, its members have been interested in celebrating those who, through their talent, have changed the world of mountain film. IAMF members wish to express their gratitude to the filmmakers, directors and producers who have contributed throughout their careers – through loyalty and dedication, and with little regard for personal profit — to the evolution of mountain film into the prominent genre that it is today.
