The Festival’s mission is to develop and promote the values of mountain cinematography. It offers spectators not only a symbolical “window on the world” but also tries to steer their interest towards protecting nature and the environment, and towards the sports and cultures of foreign nations. Thus, it stimulates them to assume collective responsibility for the state of the world around us. Through stories of people featured in films that are screened, it tries to inspire spectators to overcome their own inner problems and also to alter their points of view about the priorities in life and their orientation to values.
