Run the Alps Film Festival 2024, in partnership with On

Welcome to the 2024 edition of the Run the Alps film festival, with an exciting selection of trail running films for your viewing pleasure! Our four film grants this year, made possible by On, are centered on the theme of Exploring Boundaries. Our grant winners have done just that! In addition to these four short films, we have some stories from our partners at On, and a few surprises for you as well. So, make some popcorn, pour yourself a cafe au lait, kick back and enjoy.

Our Winning Films

“We received a high standard of applications from eight different countries with a wide variety of stories – so the panel had a tough job narrowing it down to four winners.”
– Katie Moore, Film Festival Manager

Our Panelists

A huge thank you to our panelists, who had the unenviable job of whittling down all of our applications this year.

Last Year’s Winners

In case you missed the films from last year’s winners, you can still watch them for free here.

Applications for 2025 Film Festival

We’re now accepting applications for this year’s film grants, for films that have trail running in the Alps as a central part of the story. For details on how to apply please head here. Winning films will be aired at Run the Alps Trail Running Film Festival in early 2025, held in partnership with On, and will be considered for airing at Kendal Mountain Festival.

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel

A few years ago, we started looking for the perfect bag for our clients to move their belongings from inn to inn, when they’re trail running the Tour du Mont-Blanc. This is it! The 55-liter size has enough room for a few sets of town clothes and personal effects.
