Mountainfilm Festival kicks off this week in our beautiful backyard of Telluride. Currently in its 33rd year, the Mountainfilm Festival is a four-day, six-senses experience of art, adventure, culture and the environment. It attracts filmmakers, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers and explorers from around the world. The theme for this year’s festival is “Awareness Into Action”. It’s amazing to get so many people that are so passionate about important causes together in one place and we’re excited to connect with amazing people and organizations that we support, like Timmy O’Neill, Shannon Galpin of Mountain2Mountain, James Q. Martin and Chris Kassar of Rios Libres, Dan Austin of 88Bikes and Sweetgrass Productions.
Below, we’ve included a couple trailers of films that we’ll be watching at this year’s festival.
The spirit celebrated at the festival may be of a vital eco-system or a fragile one. It may be of an endangered culture or of one courageous soul. It may be of a grassroots sustainability movement, the struggle of a species on the brink of extinction or captivation of the pure spirit of adventure. In whichever case, it is always a spirit that is unique, important and eminently laudable.
Along with thought-provoking, inspiring conversations, Mountainfilm Festival is packed with some killer events! Visit the Mountainfilm website for details and check back here, we’ll be live-blogging throughout the festival.
