High Point Theatre to present showcase of exciting, diverse, and informative documentary films
High Point, NC – Mountainfilm on Tour brings inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world. The tour will make a stop in High Point at the High Point Theatre, Thursday, October 8, with documentary films that will explore the themes connected to Telluride Mountainfilm’s mission of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure.
Established in 1979, Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. Working at the nexus of filmmaking and action, its flagship event is the renowned Telluride Mountainfilm festival, a four-day event held each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The festival has attracted leading documentary filmmakers, artists, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s tag line of “celebrating indomitable spirit.”
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 40,000 people on five continents.
The show begins promptly at 7:00 PM. Mountainfilm presenter, Cara Bunch, will introduce the films and engage the audience in discussion following the films. To learn more and join the conversation, visit www.mountainfilm.org.
“I hope you enjoy the selection of outstanding films being presented during Mountainfilm on Tour,” says High Point Theatre Director David Briggs. “Whether witnessing the thrilling, connective experience of a Father and Son as they set out on a 28-day white-water-rafting journey down the Colorado River, Grand Canyon, in the film “The Important Places”; or cheering on a group of competitive young girls who have no fear when taking on the boys at skateboarding in “Gnarly in Pink,” you are in for an exceptional entertainment experience!”
