12th Meetings with Mountain Film Grand Prix - Great Wooden Mountain and 4 000 PLZ

Freedom under Load by Pavol Barabasz, Slovakia, 60 min

This gentle film is about freedom, passion and strength of character. Through the extraordinary characters in this film, the director offers us an intimate look into their world. Freedom Under Load delights us with its quiet style in contrast to our loud, aggressive world. The director uses music as a strong and effective narrative tool that takes the film to a more profound level. The greatness of this humble film can be seen in a statement by one of the men, “The Tatras are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world”. And it is from these beautiful mountains that the porters draw energy to do their incredibly difficult work with joy and peace. The Grand Prize for the 12th Zakopane Mountain Film Festival is awarded to Freedom Under Load.

A Line Across The Sky
by Josh Lowell, Peter Mortimer, USA, 40 min    

A world class achievement, the Fitz Roy Traverse reveals what is possible with the new generation of climbers. The directors of this film had the challenging job of trying to create a film about an incredible climb, yet with very little actual climbing footage: the climbing was just too difficult to film. However, the film succeeds in showing us the splendour and beauty of wild Patagonia; it shows us a perfectly matched team, two climbers with complimentary styles; it shows us a great sense of humour, and most importantly, we can see a perfect example of friendship in the mountains and the solidarity of the climbing community. The film which best exemplifies human actions in an extreme environment is A Line Across the Sky.

Operation Moffat by Jen Randall, Claire Carter , UK, 20 min

It is rare to see a person who has such a natural and spontaneous relationship with the mountain environment. Climber, guide and author Gwen Moffat is such a person. She gave up a traditional lifestyle and the security it offered for a life of freedom and adventure in the hills. She couldn’t have anticipated what an inspiration she would be for Claire Carter and Jen Randall, the directors of this film. These young women have captured the spirit of Gwen Moffat with a gentle sensitivity and have provided a bridge between this remarkable woman and a younger generation. The Award for a film that shows a deep and inseparable relationship between a human being and nature goes to Operation Moffat.


The Prize of the Mayor of Zakopane for the best film, which portrays human, cultural or artistic aspects of mountain population - Wooden Mountain and 2 000 PLZ

Magic Mountain by Anca Damian, Rumunia/Polska/Francja, 95 min

It takes a big film, a complex film, a deeply disturbing film to capture the complexity and depth of a character like Adam Winkler. Through his daughter, Ania, we learn about an amazing man with a seemingly endless source of energy and ideas and an unshakable conscience committed to finding goodness in this world. His political views took him to countries around the world, but his most lasting legacy is the photographic evidence from his time spent with the Afghans fighting the Soviet troops in the wild and harsh environment of the mountains of Afghanistan. This feature-length film uses a wide array of animation techniques, building on Winkler’s drawings, photography, video footage and journals. This important story is even more profound because of the depth and nuance of the language of animation. Magic Mountain is the winner of the award for Best Film portraying human and artistic aspects of people in the mountains.

Special 12th Mountain Film Meetings Prize

In the Name of Morals and Order
by Bruno Joucla, Francja, 64 min

A poignant documentary with flawless directing discovered a dark side to the official Swiss machine of the mid 20th century, like a grain of sand clogging the smooth operation of a perfectly functioning watch. The jury would like to give a special Jury Award to In the Name of Morals and Order.
