This year, on the second weekend of December, real winter covered Krakow, making life difficult for its inhabitants. However, at the same time, a group of enthusiasts in colourful down jackets were enjoying this change of scenery, which undoubtedly suited and added charm to their feast. A feast of mountains, the Krakow Mountain Festival. Here are a few words of summary.

The verdict of the Film Contest Jury was made public last weekend during the award ceremony of the 17th Krakow Mountain Festival. The Last Mountain turned out to be the biggest winner this year. This documentary film directed by Darek Załuski received both the Grand Prix of the International Film  Competition and also the First Prize of the Polish Film Competition.

During the Krakow Mountain Festival we present the best mountain films competing in two categories - the International and Polish Film Competitions. Yesterday, during an official award ceremony of the 16th Krakow Mountain Festival, the verdict of the Jury was announced. Although there were several really impressive films this year, especially in the International “race”, it is not difficult to guess who was distinguished with Grand Prix.

This is one of, if not the most popular mountain/climbing event in Poland (there are many as Polish people are c-r-a-z-y for the mountains!) and one of the largest mountain festivals in the world. Attracting incredible talent from all fields (rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, running, skiing, snowboarding, biologists, anthropology, photography, film/documentary making, directing etc.), it's no wonder that every year, the Krakow Mountain Festival also attracts sell-out crowds.
