Osprey Packs is a proud sponsor of Mountainfilm in Telluride — we’re honored to have supported this incredible event for 10 years!

Started in 1979, Mountainfilm in Telluride is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Through the years, in and out of trends and fads, the Mountainfilm in Telluride Festival has always been best described by one unchanging word: inspiring. Far more than any other adjective, that’s how festival audiences describe their experience.

Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving, adventures worth pursuing and conversations worth sustaining.

The Official Festival Primer from Mountainfilm

Whether you’re new to Mountainfilm in Telluride this year or a veteran with decades of festival stories, listen up. The following tips and new additions might just make the difference between a good weekend and the best weekend…ever.

Tip 1 (for everyone): We suggest you make a general plan by first reading all the film synopses and presentations. Take note of what interests you, and then check out the schedule to see when those films and presentations happen. While you’re looking at the schedule, also note the events (parties, art exhibitions, book signings, Coffee Talks, Booze & Banter etc.) that you want to attend.

Tip 2 (for everyone): Telluride’s theaters, as with most venues, offer a wide range of seating capacity. If you want to get into one of the smaller theaters, be sure to show up extra early to get a queue. Theater seats: Palm 600, High Camp 500, Sheridan 230, Nugget 186, Masons 120 and Library 65.

Tip 3 (for everyone): Once you’ve made a general plan, don’t feel compelled to stick to it exactly. It’s good to have a sense of what you aim to accomplish, but keep an ear out for buzz about what’s great and react use our new smartphone app to keep an eye on seat availability in real time.

Tip 5 (for everyone): Even experienced festival attendees should check out a few items in How to Mountainfilm. The information for parents is useful, and the hospitality center has changed location.

Tip 6 (for everyone without a pass to the sold-out symposium): This year’s Moving Mountains Symposium will explore the theme of wilderness. We will stream it live online.
