Mountainfilm on Tour

Mountainfilm on tour

Today feels like the official start to winter. It snowed up high a couple of weeks ago but, last night, the white fluffy stuff fell in town. This morning the streets and sidewalks were blanketed in snow and the ski runs are now covered in white.

This switch from the warm days of fall to the chillier days of winter make me want to curl up and read and book by a fire or watch a movie. Not just any movie, but a movie that expands and awakens my mind. There are many documentaries that do fit this category but Mountainfilm immediately pops into my mind.

Established in 1979, Mountainfilm, a four-day film festival held each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. It has attracted leading documentary filmmakers, artists, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s tag line of “celebrating indomitable spirit.”

The good news is that Mountainfilm goes on tour and brings their amazing programming, inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world.

Check out the tour schedule here. Warning, after you see some of the movies you will be motivated to plan your next adventure and will walk away asking yourself “How can I make a difference?”
