Tell us a story about sport, adventure and whatever is linked to mountain and outdoors! This section collects videos which have as their main subject the sports that are linked to the world of mountains and outdoors (ski, alpinism, trekking, snowboarding, slackline, longboard, climbing and so on)

Tell us about the rediscovery of the landscape, of nature and of the culture of mountain areas. This section collects videos that show the natural mountain environment and the footprint left by man on the landscape, together with the culture and traditional heritage of people and communities that are linked to mountain life

OPEN YOUR EYES - Focus on climate change
Open your eyes about climate change! Show us the consequences on the environment, on the landscape and on the life of the inhabitants of mountains. This new section collects videos that, through the complaint of both negative actions and indifference, convey the importance of reconnecting to environment and acting in defence of it
