The NZ Mountain Film Festival National Tour takes award winning films to audiences around NZ from August 1 onwards. A selection of the films are available for screenings in your town.

We also have a free Schools program sponsored by the Federated Mountain Clubs of NZ. This means any school can apply for a free DVD of films to be shown at school, during school hours.  For more information, or to apply for a free DVD, visit the School Tour page on the FMC website.

Hosts in regions around the country choose a programme that reflects the interests of their local audiences from a selection of films on adventure, culture, environment and action sports.

Check back in autumn as we add details for the 2021 Tour!

National Film Tour FAQ

To ensure audiences around NZ get a taste of the nine day NZ Mountain Film & Book Festival, we send a select set of films on tour around the country. The ‘Best of Wanaka’ is a selection of our most popular films screened at the festival. We wrap up a nice bundle of favourites including the award winners, the audience choice, NZ made films and a variety of adventure sports and expeditions. The package running time is about 2 hours per screening and provided in a digital format. Hosts may screen a single show or screen the package multiple times

We invite anyone to host a screening: schools, universities, youth groups, environmental groups or National organisations, movie theatres or even individuals. The screening can be used as a fundraiser for non-profit organisations. Our aim is to inspire a wide range of people and groups by taking the films on the road.

You can host a tour anywhere and we invite you to get creative; we love outdoor screenings, shows in climbing gyms, clubs, halls and breweries. Then of course theatres, halls and auditoriums work well. All you need is the equipment (professional screening equipment) you are good to go!

There is a fixed fee; this means the host can manage ticket prices, venue fees, sponsors and any other income or costs or income related to screening. The structure is simple to allow you to meet your financial goals.

The fee includes:
• The film provided in digital format or dvd
• Technical advice and support
• Marketing collateral and support – National Tour poster, logo, imagery

Absolutely, this is a great way to support your fundraising efforts. Getting sponsors on-board to cover the screening fee is a great way to offset this cost and broaden the audience scope by getting the right partners involved. Chat to your locals stores, businesses and supporters. Note, our national sponsors, The North Face and Lumix, each feature on the intro reel before each show.
