Launched in 1979, Mountainfilm in Telluride is one of America’s longest-running film festivals – although calling Mountainfilm a “film festival” is an understatement. Now celebrating its 35th year, the event includes, but is not limited to, films about mountain living, adventure, socio-cultural challenges, cultures under siege, flora and fauna, plus a symposium, breakfast talks, lectures, music and more.

Mountainfilm is dedicated to protecting and preserving endangered peoples, species and ideas,  but it is less about words and images, more about walking your talk.

Moutainfilm, which marks the kickoff of Telluride’s busy summer festival season, takes places annually over Memorial Day weekend, this year, May 24 – May 27, 2013.

But the celebration starts now. Or at least an amuse bouche for the holidays.

Join Mountainfilm for a family-friendly event at the Sheridan Opera House, where the event got its start. Enjoy a special sneak-peek of a film scheduled to be screened in May, as well as selections from the event’s considerable archive:

Unicorn Sashimi
The Man Who Planted Trees
Fresh Guacamole
Honnold 3.0

For a preview, watch this trailer of “Honnold 3.0.”

Doors and reception at 5:30 p.m. Films start at 6:30 p.m

Tickets are $20 per person; $10 for children 12 and under. Available at the door.
