Mostra de cinema de muntanya i aventura de Figueres presents a new edition dedicated to PATAGONIA. This magnificent natural habitat lies at the far south of South-America and it has a climate which is influenced by the strong Antarctic winds and the Pacific Ocean storms.

For rock climbers, Patagonia is a mythic place located at the end of the world, where each mountain ascent is an adventure. Hence, the women and men who have chosen this landscape to practise rock climbing are all people with great determination and outstanding self-confidence and with very high physical and technical possibilities.

IKER and ENEKO POU, LEO HOULDING, STEFAN GLOWACZ are the guests of the 6th edition of the Festival. All of them leaders in adventure and rock climbing in Patagonia, men that have committed themselves to the mountains.

Mostra de cinema de muntanya i aventura de Figueres features the following films: SCREAM OF STONE and MY RIGHT FOOT. Both are distinguished productions which mark different mountain periods and styles and they both express the emotions inherent in them.

With this programme the Festival aims at being a meeting point open to all those who love nature and mountains.

“In general, practising alpinism and mountaineering represents one of the greatest expressions man has ever invented for his own pleasure, both physical and intellectual”.
Walter Bonatti in The Mountains of my Life
