The directors of the most relevant mountain film festivals on the international stage are celebrating their AGM in Bilbao this year, in order to examine the mountain film industry's present and near future. The Director of the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival, Jabier Baraiazarra, is the current President of the IAMF-International Alliance for Mountain Film.
The meeting was held this morning in the Palace of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, in which the international representation of the IAMF was received by the General Deputy of Bizkaia Unai Rementeria, and the Deputy of Euskera and Culture Lorea Bilbao.
Mountain culture is all over Bilbao these days. The 11th edition kicked off last Friday at the Euskalduna Palace with 1,600 spectators, and all tickets were sold out. At the Opening Ceremony, the movie The Dawn Wall was screened, and we welcomed its main character Tommy Caldwell and director Peter Mortimer.
1600 Mendi fans will enjoy in the Euskalduna Palace with THE DAWN WALL with its protagonist Tommy Caldwell and the director of the film Peter Mortimer.
