Mountain Film Festivals

The DMFF has run for 26 years and is Scotland's longest running  mountain film festival featuring over that period most of the world's most famous climbers, explorers, outdoor enthusiasts and conservationists. Sir Chris Bonnington, Doug Scott, Rhinehold Messner, Catherine Destivelle, Kurt Diemburger, Stephen Venables, Hamish Brown and Hamish McInnes have all given lectures over the years. Mountain photography competitions and Art exhibitions together with stalls selling mountaineering books, clothes and gear made this the benchmark festival of Scotland's outdoor people. The Festival is held in the Bonar Hall in November annually.
