  PONTRESINA
Engadin - Switzerland

The municipality of Pontresina, sit at the beginning of the Val Bernina,
includes some of the highest mountains of the whole Canton: the Piz
Bernina (4.049 m), the Piz Zupò (3.996 m), the Piz Argient (3.945 m) and the Piz Palü (3.905 m).

Pontresina is a typical village of the Oberengadin district, but even
though it retains the characteristic features of the local culture and
architecture, it is a young and dynamic centre as well, paying attention to new trends, especially in winter sports.

Considering the strategic position of the village (just 5 km from St.
Moritz) and the fact that it embodies an admirable union of tradition and innovation, Pontresina seemed to be the ideal frame to a Festival dedicated to the cinema and the mountains.
