The Weekend Sun Competition

The Mountain Film Festival is heading back to Tauranga to showcase a host of adventure-based short films.

Held at the Graham Young Youth Centre, on Wednesday, October 24, the festival will show some of the best mountain films from New Zealand and around the world.

Organiser and host, Richard Watson, says the films have been selected from the New Zealand Film Festival, which was held in Wanaka earlier this year.

“This is the fifth year that Tauranga has had its own screening of the NZ Mountain Film Festival,” he says.

“Originally, Tauranga wasn’t one of the touring spots for the film festival, so we organised it to come here.”

The night promises to have a mix of action-packed excitement, high drama and inspiration for your next adventure.

Macpac has also come on board with the festival, with lots of prizes to giveaway.

Tickets for the Mountain Film Festival are $20 and are available from:


The Weekend Sun has two passes to the Mountain Film Festival for two lucky readers.
