Mountainfilm on Tour to Arrive in Paonia at the Paradise Theatre on Nov. 11th
Paonia/CO– Mountainfilm on Tour brings inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world. The tour will soon visit Paonia at the Paradise Theatre on November 11th with documentary films that will explore the themes connected to Telluride Mountainfilm’s mission to use the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.
Started in 1979, Telluride Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Through the years, in and out of trends and fads, the festival has always been best described by one unchanging word: inspiring. In addition to screening leading independent documentary films from around the world, the festival includes a full-day symposium on a contemporary issue, art and photography exhibits, early morning coffee talks, outdoor programs, a book-signing party, an ice cream social, student programs and a closing picnic/awards ceremony. Presentations and panels are scheduled throughout the Memorial Day weekend event with a wide diversity of special guests, ranging from artists to adventurers and academics to activists.
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 65,000 people on six continents.
The show begins promptly at 7:30pm. A Mountainfilm presenter will introduce the films and engage the audience in discussion following the films.
