The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation is heading out to “circumnavigate the Bob and bring the Telluride Mountainfilm Tour to Great Falls, Helena and Whitefish” during the month of March! But, what IS t the Mountainfilm tour? Here’s some information from the Mountainfilm website:
Mountainfilm travels year-round and worldwide with a selection of current and best-loved films from the annual festival in Telluride. We present both single-event and multi-day shows, hosted by a wide array of organizations, including schools and colleges, corporations, community groups and theater operators. We are regularly called on by nonprofit organizations to be part of fundraising events.
Each year, we select the best short films from our annual festival and make them available to our hosts to select for their shows. Our fee-based structure gives local organizers the ability to set ticket prices, sell local sponsorship packages and conduct raffles to achieve financial and fundraising goals. Each show is emceed by a Mountainfilm presenter who guides the audience through the program, often sharing personal stories from his or her interactions with the filmmaker or the film’s subjects.
Through Mountainfilm on Tour, we touch the lives of some 40,000 people every year and visit more than 100 locations on five continents. It’s our way of extending the reach of the annual festival and helping our filmmakers’ inspiring content be seen by audiences who otherwise might never have the opportunity.
