Last March saw the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival (LLAMFF) being relaunched and it was a huge success, selling nearly 1000 tickets.  

With over 40 different films shown at 3 local venues over 3 fantastic festival evenings, and all run by an energetic team of local volunteers.  

This year the festival is back and kicking it all off on Friday 4th March is key guest speaker Kenton Cool, British Mountain Guide and 11 times Everest summiteer, will tell of his experiences in the majestic country of Nepal and further a field.  

This is followed by the UK Adventure Festival Premiere of the Discovery UK film ‘Sherpa’  -  a tale of the the Himalayan guides that have supported numerous foreign mountaineering teams for years, all filmed during the year of the  tragic earthquake.

There are a number of other excellent speakers, from a range of backgrounds, to complment our films for 2016 with John Cleare, Neil Gresham, Ian Parnell, Sophie Radcliffe, Heather Geluk,  Simon Harmer and Shirin Shabestari and many more.  With films including Operation Moffat, All Roads Lead to Scotland, Damavand, Transition to name but a few.  

This is all wrapped up with the festivals ‘gritty charm’ and a great party atmosphere every evening at our after party base in Llanberis.
