WHAT IS MOUNTAINFILM ON TOUR?
Throughout the year, and throughout the world, Mountainfilm on Tour takes an innovative sampling of short films, curated from that year's Mountainfilm in Telluride Film Festival, and goes out on the road with one mission in mind -- to educate, inspire, and motivate the world's audiences.
To achieve this goal, Mountainfilm partners with a wide array of like-minded schools, organizations, community groups, corporations, and theater operators; together, these partnerships result in an annual tour that touches the lives of over 20,000 people, from 70 different locations, on 5 different continents.
Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving, adventures worth pursuing and conversations worth sustaining.
MOUNTAINFILM ON TOUR ATL 2013
inaugural Mountainfilm on Tour ATL 2-day event captured imaginations,
captivated minds, and motivated an eye-opening experience that we hope
resonated with audiences in the days following. Such a task wouldn't
have been possible without the inspiring films and filmmakers brought to
Atlanta by the Mountainfilm in Telluride Film Festival's touring
program and our Presenting Sponsor, Morgan Stanley.

ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE
As mentioned, this entire event is built around what our environment provides us (exciting adventures, natural resources, and a place to call home) and how we can, and should, be taking care of it.
We have local initiatives right here in Atlanta who actively seek to educate and initiate necessary conversations regarding these very same ideas, and they are: the Georgia Conservancy, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, and Captain Planet Foundation.
All proceeds from Mountainfilm on Tour ATL benefit these inspiring organizations.
