Mountainfilm on Tour brings inspiration and education about important issues to audiences around the world. The tour will soon visit Fort Worth at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth on Wednesday, March 2, with documentary films that will explore the themes connected to Telluride Mountainfilm’s mission of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure.

Established in 1979, Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. Working at the nexus of filmmaking and action, its flagship event is the renowned Telluride Mountainfilm festival, a four-day event held each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The festival has attracted leading documentary filmmakers, artists, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s tag line of “celebrating indomitable spirit.”

Mountainfilm on Tour shares a selection of the films from the annual festival with audiences around the globe and offers Mountainfilm for Students, a free educational outreach initiative for K-12 schools at tour locations. Year-round and worldwide, the tour reaches over 40,000 people on five continents.  The Mountainfilm for Students program will be administered to Fort Worth’s Trinity Valley School.

Mountainfilm on Tour in Fort Worth is hosted by outdoor sporting goods retailer Backwoods.  Backwoods brings several different film tours to Fort Worth each year including Mountainfilm On Tour, the Fly Fishing Film Tour, Reel Paddling, Reel Rock, and The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.
