About the Film

MOUNTAIN is a unique cinematic and musical collaboration between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom, MOUNTAIN is a dazzling exploration of our obsession with mountains. Only three centuries ago, climbing a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Peaks were places of peril, not beauty. Why, then, are we now drawn to mountains in our millions? MOUNTAIN shows us the spellbinding force of high places – and their ongoing power to shape our lives and our dreams.

The inaugural Phenomena Short Film Festival is happening on the night of March 31 at The Orchards Niseko! 

It is FREE to enter and the event is designed to showcase the creativity of the winter community in Niseko and to bring people together for some fun towards the end of the season.

  • A map
  • A mountain
  • A Vehicle

 We will have a panel of judges and some great prizes from local businesses which we will tell you more about in the coming weeks.

So start going through that GoPro footage that no one ever looks at, get the phone or the professional camera out and come up with a short film. 

All genres accepted: 

  • Animation
  • Music video
  • Comedy
  • Documentary
  • Sci-fi

Criteria for films

  • Must adhere to theme (or be supported by explanation as to how the theme applies)
  • Must have a storyline / structure
  • Films must be between 1.5 - 8 minutes
  • Submissions in MP4 format.
  • All genres accepted: ie animation, music video, comedy, documentary, sci-fi
