The Dundee Mountain Film Festival is the UK’s longest running mountain film festival. A non competitive Festival, it presents a multi programme of the best films related to the montane and outdoor activity world including the Banff World Tour. A major feature of the Festival are the presentations and personal appearances of the worlds finest exponents of mountaineering, exploration and adventure activities who inspire and entertain full house audiences in the 400 seat film theatre. Held annually on the last weekend of November the film and speaker programme is accompanied by a large exhibition which showcases mountain art and photography, as well as an extensive display of trade and voluntary organisations related to outdoor enjoyment. In addition to the main Festival a "fringe" programme has been developed to enhance the scope of Festival audiences. Dundee played a prominent role in early polar seafaring exploration and is the home of RRS Discovery Captain Scott’s ship on his first Antarctic expedition. The cities central location makes it an ideal base for enjoying Scotlands' magnificent mountains and culture.
