Mountainfilm on Tour brings inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world. Hosted by the Western Slope Conservation Center and the Paradise Theater, the tour will soon visit Paonia at the Paradise Theater on March 14 with documentary films that will explore the themes connected to Telluride Mountainfilm’s mission of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure.
Established in 1979, Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. Working at the nexus of filmmaking and action, its flagship event is the renowned Telluride Mountainfilm festival, a four-day event held each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The festival has attracted leading documentary filmmakers, artists, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s tag line of “celebrating indomitable spirit.”
Mountainfilm on Tour shares a selection of the films from the annual festival with audiences around the globe and offers Mountainfilm for Students, a free educational outreach initiative for K-12 schools at tour locations. Year-round and worldwide, the tour reaches over 40,000 people on five continents.
“We love partnering with the Paradise to bring Mountainfilm on Tour to Paonia. The films align with our mission and culture at the Conservation Center, and they are just the right balance of exploration and education,” says Julia Bowman, event coordinator.
The show begins promptly at 7:30pm with doors opening at 7:00pm.
