"An amazing event! It is a program that is both dazzling to the eye and richly layered with ideas about the breadth of culture and craft. It reminds us of the force of filmmaking about things that matter, worlds worth exploring, and conversations worth sustaining."
—Ken Burns, filmmaker

Mountainfilm on Tour takes a selection of festival films out on the road year-round and worldwide.
