For 35 years, Mountainfilm has attracted leading independent documentary filmmakers, artists and photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s motto of “Celebrating Indomitable Spirit.” Each year, Mountainfilm on Tour takes a selection of outstanding films from the Telluride Festival on the road to engage audiences who otherwise would not have an opportunity to experience them. Year-round and worldwide, the tour reaches some 30,000 people on five continents.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the films will begin promptly at 7 p.m. Attendees can bring snacks and drinks. A Mountainfilm presenter will introduce the films as well as host engaging dialogue with the audience following the films.
