Mountainfilm Kicks-off in Telluride Today!


Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We’re hoping that you get out and play this weekend and appreciate some of your favorite wild places.

We wanted to give a special shout out to some of our member companies who are celebrating Memorial Day Weekend by taking part in Mountainfilm in Telluride. Currently in its 32nd year, the Mountainfilm Festival is a four-day, six-senses experience of art, adventure, culture and the environment. It attracts filmmakers, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers and explorers from around the world. The theme for this year’s festival is “Extinction.”
The spirit celebrated at the festival may be of a vital eco-system or a fragile one. It may be of an endangered culture or of one courageous soul. It may be of a grassroots sustainability movement or of the struggle of a species on the brink of extinction. In whichever case, it is always a spirit that is unique, important and eminently laudable.
Even if you’re not in Telluride, you can still check out a lot of the film trailers on the Mountainfilm website, as well as keep up with all of the action through their Blog, Facebook and Twitter pages.
