Mountainfilm (Film Society of Lincoln Center)

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Mountainfilm (Film Society of Lincoln Center)

SINCE: 1979

WHERE: New York City, NY, USA


Presented by Film at Lincoln Center along with Mountainfilm in Telluride, Mountainfilm was a weekend of documentaries about adventure, environment, and culture. But mainly adventure. From wrangling buffalo in the American West to bull-riding in a very different kind of rodeo; from fly-fishing in France 60 years after the Liberation to liberating another, much smaller creature in Europe; from a nail-biting rescue story in the Grand Tetons to the history of climbing in Yosemite Valley, Mountainfilm 2014 promises to educate, inspire, and motivate audiences with adventures worth pursuing.

Established in 1979 by rock climbers who would play in the mountains during THE DAY and watch documentaries about their celebrated sport at night, Mountainfilm in Telluride has evolved into a traveling forum for documentaries of all stripes: dazzling adventure and compelling environmental films and a wide range of others that examine current cultural and political issues, as well as individuals who inspire us.
