“Hory a mesto - Mountains and City” Annual Festival of Mountain Film and Adventure is the biggest mountain and adventure film festival in central Europe and a sister festival of Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF). The Festival's goal is to approach the outdoor communities and city people and to offer them films and multimedia presentations dealing with mountain sports and mountain culture. The Festival also offers a platform for the exchange of ideas between filmmakers, outdoor activists, and the public, while at the same time supporting the most artistic and effective ways of communicating outdoor-related issues.

The main 5-day event takes place in Bratislava, Slovakia in late March, followed by a series of outdoor screenings in the summer and a festival tour around 13+ Slovak towns in the fall.
