Host a Tour Stop


Mountainfilm on Tour travels around the globe featuring a collection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and enlightening documentary short films selected from the annual festival in Telluride.

Mountainfilm has been on tour since 1999, extending the festival’s reach and delivering inspiring content to global audiences. Mountainfilm on Tour shows can be scheduled from the first weekend of September through April each year.

First - Secure a Venue

Hosts must secure a venue and date for the show. Venues must have a high-quality projector, screen, audio system and dedicated technical staff. Playlists are approximately two+ hours long. The venue should provide ample time before and after the event for tech check (at least three hours before doors), setup and breakdown. If hosts plan to sell tickets at the venue they will need on-site box office staff.

Second - Select a Playlist

Hosts may choose one of our three pre-curated playlists ($1,300) that are delivered in digital format and run for approximately two+ hours. Additional screenings of the same content are also available at a discount ($1,000).

For hosts interested in creating a custom playlist ($1800), Mountainfilm on Tour staff will collaborate with hosts to create a unique playlist from a selection of over 40 short films. Once we have confirmed your show date and program type, we'll send your booking agreement for signature and invoice. Additional screenings of the same content for a custom playlist are also available at a discount ($1,000).

Third - Promote Your Event and Sell Tickets!

Hosts can access Mountainfilm’s extensive marketing materials to help promote the show. This includes poster templates, Mountainfilm on Tour trailer, film still images, film descriptions, custom logos and more. Hosts should be prepared to promote the event via social media, distribute posters, and connect with local organizations and media. Hosts are responsible for marketing their event, managing box office ticket sales and related event logistics and operations. Ticket proceeds are the property of the show host. 

Additional Host Responsibilities


Tour show hosts or a team member may choose to emcee the show. Mountainfilm will provide guidelines, film notes and pointers to support the show's emcee.  

Tech & A/V

Hosts must ensure that they have access to a high-resolution digital projector that is capable of accepting input via HDMI, a high-quality sound system, microphones, lighting and a screen. Hosts must arrange for an audio/video specialist or technician to operate the venue’s A/V throughout the entirety of the show and tech check.

A tech run must be scheduled at least three hours before the show. The venue must provide time before and after the show to set up and break down.

Hosts will need to provide a computer that’s fast enough to offer seamless playback of the digital download and an HDMI port. The computer must also have enough capacity on its internal hard drive (at least 90 GB) to download the playlist. Our programs are formatted to play from an Apple laptop.
