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.
Mountainfilm for Students is available via an online virtual platform to provide educators with film programs curated by grade level and individual films accompanied by classroom materials. A downloadable file with supporting tech and emcee notes can be made available for assembly-style screenings. These resources are available at no cost to K-12 public schools. Classroom materials for the 2022-23 season provided by Reciprocity Project.

Through grant and donor support, we connect with K-12 public schools throughout the Four Corners region to offer free film screenings presented by a Mountainfilm staff member when possible. 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.
