We are thrilled to join the National Parks Centennial celebration by dedicating our 2016 Moving Mountains Symposium to the country’s crown jewels, and are busy booking guests. Mountainfilm is also now accepting film entries for 2016, and will be announcing new programs and events as we near Mountainfilm festival Memorial Day weekend.
The festival schedule includes films, presentations, a symposium, parties, intimate talks, book signings, musical performances and more. The schedule for the 2016 Telluride Mountainfilm festival will go live in May.
Passes for the 38th annual Mountainfilm festival will go on sale in December 2015.
"Telluride Mountainfilm is the single most inspiring event that I attend each year. It is a chance to rub elbows with modern-day heroes, with people who are actually making a difference. A chance to see films that would be lost. A chance to find out what’s really happening in the world and to meet people who are living their dreams." —Ace Kvale, adventure photographer
