Our mission is to use the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. As a primary element of this mission, our student programs offer engaging content featuring inspiring stories to ignite the imagination and broaden perspectives.
This year, in response to COVID-19 we have created an online virtual platform to provide educators with film programs curated by grade level as well as individual films accompanied by classroom materials aligned with College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards. Due to the generous support of our donors and sponsors, these resources are available at no cost to K-12 public schools.
If you are an educator at a K-12 public school and would like to bring Mountainfilm for Students to your school, please complete our application below and a Mountainfilm staff member will contact you at the email provided.
If you are with a private institution and are interested in bringing Mountainfilm to your school, consider hosting a Mountainfilm on Tour show.
When conditions permit, we plan to return to our normal programs below.
MOUNTAINFILM FOR STUDENTS ON TOUR
Mountainfilm for Students is offered at no cost to K-12 public schools in conjunction with Mountainfilm on Tour shows. These curated playlists are customized by grade level with informative and inspiring content. Classroom materials developed by teachers to align with College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards are available for select films.
Through grant and donor support, we connect with K-12 public schools throughout the Four Corners region to offer free film screenings independent of a tour show. If you are a teacher or administrator at a public school in southwest Colorado or the Four Corners area and are interested in hosting a screening at your school, contact us for more information.
Mountainfilm collaborates with Telluride Academy to create a unique festival experience for local and regional students. This interactive program gives students unique access to films, filmmakers and festival events. The weekend culminates at the awards ceremony where the students present the Student Choice Award, including a $1,000 cash prize to the festival film that they feel will most inspire their generation.
