I’m proud to help bring Mountainfilm on Tour to Atlanta!
As a supporter and attendee of the Mountainfilm on Tour events for many years, I’m very pleased to have been part of the team that worked hard to bring Mountainfilm on Tour to Atlanta for the first time in September of 2013. And I’m equally grateful to continue to support and sponsor this inspiring event. We’re all excited about the upcoming 2015 Mountainfilm on Tour ATL and we hope you join us — see you at the Plaza!
Mountainfilm on Tour ATL is a weekend-long celebration of short films that inspire, entertain, and educate us about the world and our place in it.
Beautiful, intense, fascinating, revealing — the films showcase cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving, adventures worth pursuing and conversations worth sustaining. They represent the highest standards in documentary film and are curated from the collection of films from Mountainfilm in Telluride. You will experience great moments of awareness and excitement, and leave feeling enlightened … and hopefully inspired.
Yet the celebration is about more than film. We create a true festival atmosphere with local musicians, theater artists and visiting film guests from around the world who come to Atlanta to engage with Mountainfilm audiences all weekend long.
Mountainfilm on Tour ATL steadfastly supports local initiatives, organizations and businesses that align with the Mountainfilm mission to actively educate, inspire and motivate viewers regarding cultural and environmental issues. We are proud to work with and for the community and, of course, the event is ‘green’ — it promotes sustainability, recycling and reusability. Proceeds support Atlanta nonprofits.
