Fall 2017 Special Events

October 20-21, 2017 - Mountainfilm on Tour

Mountainfilm travels year-round and worldwide with a selection of current and best-loved films from the annual festival in Telluride. We present both single-event and multi-day shows, hosted by a wide array of organizations, including schools and colleges, corporations, community groups and theater operators. We are regularly called on by nonprofit organizations to be part of fundraising events. Each year, we select the best short films from our annual festival and make them available to our hosts to select for their shows. Each show is emceed by a Mountainfilm presenter who guides the audience through the program, often sharing personal stories from his or her interactions with the filmmaker or the film's subjects.

Through Mountainfilm on Tour, we touch the lives of over 50,000 people every year and visit more than 100 locations on six continents. It's our way of extending the reach of the annual festival and helping our filmmakers’ inspiring content be seen by audiences who otherwise might never have the opportunity.  For a listing of the films to be shown, please click here.
