Best Mountaineering Film is Dhaulagiri is my Everest

16th edition of the Mountain Film Festival in Slovenia took place in Ljubljana, 14.-19.2.2022. Our film Dhaulagiri is my Everest got the Best Mountaineering Film Award.

Jury´s statement: Through the story of the great Slovak alpinist Zoltan Demjan, the film tries to answer the eternal question: Why do we climb high mountains, even though we risk our lives? Despite his incredible achievements, such as the ascent along the extremely demanding southern wall of the Lhotse Shar without additional oxygen in 1984, Zoltan remained more or less unknown in Western Europe, behind the Iron Curtain. The story is perfectly complemented by Zoltan's archival recordings, which are available to the public for the first time.
