Mountainfilm on Tour

January 18, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

This Hop annual favorite returns with short, inspiring profiles of everyday people doing difficult and extraordinary things.


Join us for another evening of culture, adventure and inspiration from the 2019 Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado. Tonight's program, "Profiles in Character," spotlights equity, diversity and personal courage with moving explorations into prison reform, LGBTQ rights and historic racism. Some of the people we'll meet include women firefighters, a blind white-water kayaker, a civil rights hero, Arizona prisoners-turned-wild horse trainers, a Nepalese female alpine guide and a queer indigenous couple bravely dancing in Powwow. Note: Ashes to Ashes contains descriptions of racial violence. See the lineup below for more information. 

The program consists of 10 short films and runs 2h15m (with an intermission). Check out the full lineup HERE.

Founded in 1979, Mountainfilm is one of America's longest-running film festivals and is best described by one word: inspiring. A dynamic weekend of films, people, art, stories and ideas that celebrate indomitable spirit, Mountainfilm educates and inspires audiences and motivates individuals and communities to advance solutions for a livable world.
