Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (KIMFF) 2011

The 9th edition of Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival will be held from 8-12 December 2011 in Kathmandu - the cultural and cosmopolitan capital of the Himalayan region. Since its birth in 2000, KIMFF has evolved from a festival focusing initially on the Himalaya to one encompassing a wide range of subjects and issues that explore the diverse and complex ways in which human beings relate to mountains. KIMFF seeks to showcase films that attract peer review and critiques that lead to better documentation of mountain issues, particularly of highland regions of the developing world.


About 50 films will be selected for KIMFF 2011. Around 15-20 documentaries will be shortlisted to be viewed by an international jury. Filmmakers can choose whether or not to submit their films for competition. Accepted films not selected for competition will be screened and be eligible for the Audience Award. Films made by Nepali filmmakers will have the opportunity to participate in ‘Nepal Panorama’, a separate showcase of Nepali entries. The objective of ‘Nepal Panoroma’ is to promote Nepali films in all genres.


KIMFF 2011 coincides with Nepal Tourism Year 2011. As part of this effort the festival will feature a special selection of films that have been instrumental in putting Nepal on the world tourism map. Films and activities that celebrate man's spirit for exploration and adventure, will also be part of this edition of the festival.


In the presence of filmmakers, film enthusiasts, critics, scholars, journalists, activists, and mountaineers, the festival will include discussion forums, on-demand screenings, guest lectures, exhibitions of books and photographs celebrating mountains and workshops for aspiring filmmakers.

City Hall in Kathmandu is as basic as a hall can be. Not a surprise in a Maoist-run country.The one concession to bourgeois trappings is this old chandelier which hangs in the entrance to the auditorium.
