We are committed to help creative individuals tell stories that represent the spirit of the Mountainfilm festival. Grants are awarded to filmmakers, photographers, artists and adventurers whose projects are intended to move audiences to action on issues that matter.
At Mountainfilm, we believe that climate change is the most critical issue of our time. We also believe in grassroots movements and have spent nearly four decades sharing and celebrating their powerful stories.
Education is a primary element of Mountainfilm’s mission. We accomplish this in three ways: tour education, festival education and regional outreach. The very nature of our programming — eye-opening adventure, environmental and cultural documentary films on contemporary issues — educates students by simply presenting exceptional content to contemplate, study and explore.
