Mountainfilm Festival

Held every Memorial Day weekend, Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival that showcases nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues. Along with exceptional documentaries, the festival goes beyond the film medium by bringing together world-class athletes, change makers and visionary artists for a multi-dimensional celebration of indomitable spirit. Mountainfilm, which includes interactive talks, free community events, outdoor programming and presentations, aims to inspire audiences to action on worthy causes.

Mountainfilm takes place on the traditional homelands of the Ute peoples.

News & Views

Mountainfilm is more than simply a festival or world tour, it's a community. We follow the folks featured in the festival long after their Mountainfilm appearance and interact with our audience members in the real and virtual worlds. The News & Views section of our website features news on issues, themes and personalities we hold dear and also includes opportunities for views into Mountainfilm's past, present and future with videos, photo galleries, festival archives and more.

While the annual festival and world tour occupy a lot of Mountainfilm’s focus and energy, they are not all that we do. These initiatives also inspire us throughout the year.
