Mountainfilm in Telluride doesn’t just signify the start of summer, it also allows you a wonderful time to be inspired and motivated, as well as to educate yourself on issues that matter, environments worth preserving, cultures worth exploring, conversations worth sustaining, and adventures worth pursuing. In its 36th year, the festival will find, and remain, a big part of your heart. You WILL be inspired. Guaranteed.
The line up for this year is extra stellar, especially because several of the films either star or are created by some of the local talent that inhabits our tiny mountain town. The films are: 14.C, 64 MPH, Damnation, Dear Governor Hickenlooper, and Self-Storage. Check the schedule for film times, and show these amazing people some well-deserved love.
It is too hard to say what else you shouldn't miss, as we look forward to catching as many films as possible. Stay tuned for a post after the festival to learn about some of our favorites.
Also, download the Mountainfilm app! It is free, and very easy to use. Just go to the app store on your phone, search “Mountainfilm”, and it will come up. Add the hashtag #mfilm14 to all social media posts!
