Mountainfilm uses the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. We are a dynamic organization and festival of films, people, stories, and ideas that celebrates indomitable spirit, educates and inspires audiences, and motivates individuals and communities to advance solutions for a livable world. 2016 marks the second year of Mountainfilm on Tour in Miami. Spearheading the effort has been the architecture firm [STRANG], which operates design studios in both Telluride and Miami.
"The Kampong was selected as the venue due to its cultural significance and shared educational mission", says Max Strang, Chairman of MountainfilmMIA Incorporated. Located on the shores of Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, The Kampong is the historical home of botanist David Fairchild and the National Tropical Botanical Garden's only garden outside of Hawaii. Recently it was announced that Florida International University and the National Tropical Botanical Garden have joined forces to create the International Center for Tropical Botany (ICTB) at The Kampong. The ICTB will lead efforts to preserve and study tropical plants for future generations. "Today, our scientists lead the way in our managment of tropical plant resources and protecting the biodiversity of the planet," says FIU Provost Kenneth Furton. "This center serves to further their reach to create greater understandings and stewardship of these resources that we use for food, medicine and so much more."
