Mountainfilm on Tour in Savannah,
a nonprofit film festival designed to educate and inspire audiences about critical issues, will take place at the Charles H. Morris Center, located at 10 E. Broad St., on January 21 and January 22, 2011.
The films will feature themes of adventure, mountaineering, remarkable personalities, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining.
The two-day film festival will kick-off with an opening reception January 21 at 6:00 p.m. featuring complimentary food from local vendors, including wine and beer for purchase. Former Savannah resident Justin Clifton, director of Mountainfilm on Tour, will moderate the film introductions and presentations as well as question and answer sessions.
A complete list of films will be announced in January.
In its original format, Mountainfilm is a four-day film festival extravaganza held each year in Telluride, Colo. and the gondola-linked town of Mountain Village, Colo. For more than 30 years, Mountainfilm has attracted filmmakers, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers and explorers from around the world to support the communal motto: “Celebrating Indomitable Spirit.”
