Telluride’s Mountainfilm Goes Digital
The adventure-forward film festival gets a twist amid Coronavirus pandemic
For those who are familiar, Telluride’s Mountainfilm has served up an eclectic array of movies, primarily focused around adventure and the spirit of the Mountain West, for 41 years.
Now, the festival is delivering this experience to you in the comfort of your home. From May 15-25, 2020, cinephiles can stream over 100 films, as well as indulge in seminars or additional presentations with the new (and digital) $75 Bivvy pass.
From adventure films to thought-provoking documentaries, the 10-day festival’s 2020 lineup will still include overarching themes like environmental awareness, outdoor recreation and adrenaline throughout all the films showcased.
Although organizers are still adjusting to COVID-19 regulations, Mountainfilm Festival Director Suzan Beraza is excited to get more people involved in seeing the films through streaming services.
“We’re psyched for the chance to bring great programming to people who’ve been curious about Mountainfilm for all these years, but have never been able to come,” said Beraza.
Mountainfilm also added the choice to rent individual films, shorts programs or presentations for $10 each to get as many people watching the compelling films as possible.
“We’re really excited about this year’s symposium and presentations, plus we’re going to have a series of meet the author events, Q&As and filmmaker workshops that will showcase what Mountainfilm does best — bringing connection and conversation to our greater community,” said Beraza
