On the 20th of September 2018, at the 23rd edition of Ladek Mountain Festival – the greatest and oldest Polish event of this kind, after watching all the films of 23rd Ladek Mountain Festival's Film Competition, the Jurors decided to award the film Addicted to Altitude as Best Film about Mountaineering:
By using archival footage intertwined with interviews with the survivors of the Himalayan Climbing Ark, director Pavol Barabaš weaves a thick-textured blanket of the Slovak high-altitude mountaineering from its humble beginnings in 1960s to the world-class ascents in the 1970s and 1980s. Packed with valuable historic data, serious and funny at the same time, this is a tribute to the legendary Himalayan expedition leader Ivan Gálfy, the Slovak twin of Andrzej Zawada.
