Once again this fall, WCC’s Grand Junction and Montrose chapters will host MountainFilm on Tour, and if you enjoy short documentary films with an adventure/environmental edge then you won’t want to miss it!
The MountainFilm Festival returns to Grand Junction’s Avalon Theater on Saturday, Nov. 7, for one night only.
Doors open at 5:30 and tickets are just $15 (kids 10 and under are free).
The doors open at 5:30 p.m., and it’s worth coming early for happy hour (the first 100 21-and-over guests get a free drink!), a fabulous silent auction (check out the growing list of items), and door prizes (courtesy of Rimrock Adventures, REI and Loki).
The movies start at 7 pm. Here’s the full lineup:
- “A Line in the Sand”
- “Body Team 12”
- “Delta Dawn”
- “California: Paradise Burning”
- “Sufferfest 2: Desert Alpine”
- (Intermission: drinks & silent auction)
- “Leave It As It Is”
- “Knee Deep”
- “The Important Places”
- “The Fisherman’s Son”
Thanks to the wonderful sponsors who make this event possible:
To commemorate the 10th annual MountainFilm on Tour in Montrose, event organizers have expanded it to two evenings, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 13 and 14. Both shows will be at the Montrose Pavilion starting at 6:30 pm, and admission is free! (donations appreciated)
The Friday screening will feature the full-length film “Unbranded,” this year’s Audience Choice Award at Telluride MountainFilm, where it premiered.
Focusing on the plight of wild mustangs held in captivity by the BLM, the full-length film follows Texas cowboy Ben Masters and three friends as they adopt, train and ride wild horses 3,000 miles from the Mexican border to Canada through some of the American West’s wildest terrain.
Organized as a joint fundraiser for the Uncompahgre Valley Association (UVA) and Community Options, the event is free with a cash bar. UVA will also host a silent auction (Friday, Nov. 13 only) to kick off your holiday shopping!
