WINTER FILM FESTIVAL

FROM 5 TO 8 NOVEMBER 2020 ❄️


The Winter Film Festival has become the essential gathering for outdoor sports enthusiasts as well as for an uninitiated audience eager to explore and travel.

The festival is known for being a skilful blend of outdoor sports, adventures, music, encounters and sociability.

Whilst retaining its attachment to its home territory and its values, the Winter Film Festival is constantly seeking a wider base and new ideas and every year is a  little more receptive to new fields to satisfy an ever-expanding audience.

So, this year the event is launching an Academy to provide an introduction to  and / or improvement in outdoor sports which can be pursued in the open-air stadium that is the Upper Tarentaise.

Sharing, Freedom, Pleasure.... Welcome to the Winter Film Festival!
