14 films, including 8 new ones

An exceptional selection, international films, numerous previews, films never seen before in France, the show promises to be grandiose!

The Petzl Altitude Camp

Embark on a unique experience at altitude. 24 hours in the heart of the Mont-Blanc massif, at the Col du Géant.

Photo and video workshops

We offer technical photo and video training in the mountains, with the best professionals!

Mountain trips

In partnership with the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix, we have put together a program of outings for all levels, in a spirit of discovery and learning. 

The cinema conferences

From 4 to 6 p.m., we offer a four-day conference program at the Vox cinema.


Every day, after returning from the mountain outings, three meeting moments will be organised at the base camp of the festival, the PlanB hotel, between 4pm and 6pm.

Tribute to René Vernadet

For this first edition, it seems obvious to us to pay a special tribute to the great master of mountain cinema, René Vernadet. He has done us the honour of being present during the highlights of the festival.

Our bookshop partner

The Landru bookshop in Chamonix has been an institution for almost a century. Run by passionate booksellers, it is taking up residence in our PlanB base camp for the festival.
