Mountainfilm Style Day 4 – Street Scene

Adren­a­line, imag­i­na­tion, and ideas are buzzing at Moun­tain­film in Tel­luride. This year’s film­mak­ers have not only tak­en art and tech­nol­o­gy to a whole new lev­el, they have stretched their imag­i­na­tion and their lim­its to bring us some of the most pow­er­ful sto­ries affect­ing our world today. Moun­tain­filmers wake by 8AM for free cof­fee and pan­el dis­cus­sions with experts on top­ics from the scarci­ty of our nat­ur­al resources to the recent Greg Morten­son scan­dal. Fueled on caf­feine and inspi­ra­tion, they pack their day with films and pre­sen­ta­tions only to ral­ly for a night of seri­ous par­ty­ing and cel­e­brat­ing of this unique com­mu­ni­ty of peo­ple that Moun­tain­film invites.

In fact, for many Moun­tain­filmers the con­ver­sa­tions and sto­ries between the films are equal­ly as empow­er­ing, mind open­ing and engag­ing as the films them­selves. With envi­ron­men­tal heroes, world-class ath­letes and pas­sion­ate artists wan­der­ing the streets some­times it’s best to skip a screen­ing and enjoy a beer and some con­ver­sa­tion in the sun–or even bet­ter, catch Dean Pot­ter out­side late at night and find the courage to have a chat. As long as there is adven­ture, pas­sion, friends and pow­er­ful ideas, any­thing goes at Moun­tain­film. Enjoy the pho­tos below for an idea of the vibe here in Telluride.
