Bilbao Mendi Film Festival, which will be held from 7th to 16th December, announces its first big star of the Official Section: the movie The Dawn Wall and the presence of its main character, the climber Tommy Caldwell.
The audience will have the chance to enjoy the Opening Ceremony of this 11th edition of the Mendi Film. Together with Caldwell, who will sign autographs for the audience after the screening, the film will be presented by Peter Mortimer ‒director, Sender Films‒ and Philipp Manderla ‒producer, Red Bull Media House‒.
The mountaineer and writer Juanjo San Sebastián will be the guest of honour of this 11th edition of the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival. He will receive the WOP ‒The Walk On Project Foundation Award‒ for his defence and transmission of the social values of mountaineering.
This will be the fifth edition in which the Award is given by the The Walk On Project Foundation, and Juanjo San Sebastián will join the exclusive group of great mountaineering personalities that have already been awarded: Josep Manuel Anglada, Sir Chris Bonington and Peter Habeler, along with the film Drawn by Jeremy Collins.
