Nepal film festival inspires young filmmakers

Asia's only mountain film festival, which aims to discover young artists, attracted 25,000 theatregoers last year.

    The Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival is starting in the Nepali capital, featuring 80 films about mountain sports, culture and adventure.

    The event is the only mountain film festival in Asia, and since it started it has inspired many young filmmakers to produce their own movies.

    Last year, the festival attracted more than 25,000 theatregoers.
