Festival History

bridge at bachnagairn Organisation is through the Dundee Mountain Film Festival Society, a Scottish Charitable body (SC029267). The organising committee consists of volunteers from local climbing clubs. The Patron of the Festival is Chris Tiso, Chief Executive of Tiso. Lord Wilson of Tillyorn was a previous Patron.

The Festival is non-competitive and all films and presenters appear by invitation, recognising the quality and the content of their work. The Festival has established close links with the Banff Mountain Film Festival and is a member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film.

The first Dundee Mountain Film Festival was staged in 1983 to raise funds for building the replacement bridge at Bachnagairn in memory of our friend Roy Tait, a member of the Grampian Club and Tayside Mountain Rescue Team.
