Andrej Grmovšek

Andrej is an alpinist, explorer, and admirer of our planet’s remotest corners, a devoted father and husband, and an environmentalist who enjoys snowy landscapes and free-flowing rivers… He’s been active in the mountains for more than thirty years and he’s climbed countless difficult routes in all the major mountain ranges. He’s a multiple winner of the Best Slovenian alpinist of the year award, but for him, climbing is mainly an endless source of inspiration, which can lead to profound experiences. He’s previously been a part of the festival as a speaker and moviemaker, and this year he’ll be one of the people with the important task of selecting the festival’s best films.
