35 countries are lucky enough to host two and a half hours of these high adrenalin, awe inspiring mountain adventure short films.

This year the screenings will be held at the Astor Theatre in St Kilda, Village Cinemas at Crown Melbourne and Mt Buller cinema in June.

The short films are focused squarely around some of the world's best mountain sport, adventure, culture and exploration. See some wild and remote areas rarely visited and be completely enthralled by the 'mesmerising cinematography, thought-provoking storylines and adrenalin-inducing action sequences.'
