We are committed to help creative individuals tell stories that represent the spirit of the Mountainfilm festival. Grants are awarded to filmmakers, photographers, artists and adventurers whose projects are intended to move audiences to action on issues that matter.
Education is a primary element of Mountainfilm’s mission. We accomplish this in three ways: tour education, festival education and regional Outreach.
The very nature of our programming — eye-opening adventure, environmental and cultural documentary films on contemporary issues — educates students by simply presenting exceptional content to contemplate, study and explore. Students are an important audience, and we aim to share Mountainfilm’s inspiring content with them because they may otherwise never experience it.
Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating and inspiring audiences, but there is another motivation underlying our mission: We want to help promote action toward positive change. One way to do that is to facilitate involvement between our audiences and the causes that are espoused by our filmmakers and presenters.
