Film Festival in St.Anton am Arlberg. Every year, in the second week of September, St.Anton am Arlberg is filled with mountain films. In the course of a week-long film festival, exciting and dramatically beautiful mountain and adventure films are presented. Latest productions stand shoulder-to-shoulder next to legendary classics, sophisticated documentaries next to alpine thrillers, international contributions next to films from the Arlberg region. In just a few years, Stefan König has succeeded in making the St.Anton am Arlberg film festival so famous that people are talking about it far beyond our local borders. This is certainly due to the fact that the history of mountain films is closely connected with the Arlberg region and with St.Anton am Arlberg in particular. Curious ? Then make a big X on your calendar for September. That is not only the best hiking season between Valluga and Patteriol, it's also the time for mountain films and one of the cultural high points in St. Anton am Arlberg.
