Tignes Film Awards


It’s award season in Hollywood but there is no need to feel left out as the Mountain Film Awards are on their way to the Espace Killy! The Oscars, The Grammies, The Golden Globes and The Nobel Peace Prize. The glitz and glamour as the great and the good gather to celebrate their achievements. Nights where legends are made and dreams come true. For many it marks the pinnacle of their career, the culmination of years of hard work. Well, this winter the team behind the Morzine Film Awards are bringing their magic to Tignes (& beyond) for the very first Tignes Film Awards.

The format is simple - teams have one week to put together a film lasting no more than five minutes and that is pretty much it. The only limit really is your imagination. The week of filming, which will take place between 01-08 of March, will then culminate at the Tignespace where our biggest senders, party makers and carnage creators from Val, Tignes, Brev and beyond will walk down the red carpet. Hundreds of seasonaires, locals and holidaymakers will attend to pay homage to the efforts of the film makers and film stars. There will be an ocean of alcohol to keep things classy, as well as a ton of epic prizes from the Festival’s long list of sponsors. And proceeds from the night will all be channelled back into community projects, so the carnage is all for a good cause. Philanthropissed, you could say.

Community is the word that best describes the event. It’s all about getting the community together to celebrate the town and the people who make it great. Shredding
