ABOUT MOUNTAINFILM IN TELLURIDE
Mountainfilm is America’s premier festival celebrating achievement in adventure and activism, culture and environment. We accept and screen feature and short films — mostly doc but some narrative — on a broad range of subjects. Of course, we are always interested in work that focuses on mountains, mountain culture and mountaineering but are also partial to films about people who are dedicated to changing the world. See a complete list of films from the 2013 Festival here.
Mountainfilm honors filmmakers and film subjects alike, awarding generous cash prizes to be announced at the Closing Picnic, Monday, May 27, 2013. Click here to view the list of 2013 award winners.
We particularly encourage filmmakers to submit short films and are happy to offer a discounted fee. Films that are twenty-five minutes or less in length qualify for a reduced fee through the extended late deadline of February 14, 2014.
Please contact entries at mountainfilm dot org to obtain information about submitting with a student discount.
We highly encourage you to submit ALL materials online, including the film itself. However, we will not download film files: all online entries must be hosted by the filmmaker or a third party (we recommended Vimeo.com). If online entry is not possible, entrants must submit 2 DVDs (any region, NTSC encouraged). Please DO NOT include ANY promotional materials in your submission.
