Mountainfilm Deadline Looms


Movie producers have until Monday February 28th to make their submissions to the 2011 Mountain Film Festival in Telluride. With last minute editing through the weekend adventure culture pics can still make the deadline for consideration. Cash prizes amounting to $10,000 are at stake as well as a tremendous opportunity to showcase filmmaking that not only celebrates the art of adventure but the highest aspirations of the human spirit.

The theme this year is “Awareness Into Action”. The annual Moving Mountains Symposium that kicks of the event will revolve around the efforts of world renown thought leaders who have transformed their ideas into concrete missions of social conscience. So far the list of speakers include Dan Austin of the 88 Bikes Foundation, poet and activist Terry Tempest Williams and National Geographic Explorer in Residence Wade Davis. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit projects that support the theme and share the festival’s spirit of cause-based exploration.
