Mountainfilm on Tour brings inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world. The tour will soon visit Santa Cruz at the Rio Theatre on November 13 with documentary films that will explore the themes connected to Telluride Mountainfilm's mission of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure.
Established in 1979, Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. Working at the nexus of filmmaking and action, its flagship event is the renowned Telluride Mountainfilm festival, a four-day event held each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The festival 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."
Mountainfilm on Tour shares a selection of the films from the annual festival with audiences around the globe and offers Mountainfilm for Students, a free educational outreach initiative for K-12 schools at tour locations. Year-round and worldwide, the tour reaches over 40,000 people on five continents.
A Mountainfilm presenter will introduce the films and engage the audience in discussion following the films.
