21-23 December 2017

    Every year towards the end of the year on December, Pokhara International Mountain Film Festival, a three day plus film festival is held in the tourist city of Pokhara. The festival is a non-competitive event that showcases documentaries, shorts, features and experimental films that deals with the subjects of environment, indigenous people, culture, extreme sports, mountaineering and all other issues related to mountains and the communities around it. The festival aims to bring together locals, tourism entrepreneurs, various stakeholders, filmmakers, students, activists, artists and movie lovers to enjoy the movies and help open up dialogs for the betterment of the community as a whole.

  • PIMFF Among The Mountains

    After the 3rd PIMFF in Pokhara, we would take few selected films from the festival to be screened at different mountain communities. We would have screening at at least four mountain communities in the laps of the mountains, Jomsom in Mustang district, Ghandruk in Kaski District, Ghale Gaun in Lamjung district and Manang in Manang district. If resources permit we would like to take screenings to places like Baglung in Baglung district, Kushma in Parbat district, Beni in Myagdi district, Besisahar in Lamjung district and Damauli in Tanahun district, as these places have huge concentration of people from the mountain region who have migrated here in search of better quality of life.
