Mountainfilm on Tour to Arrive in Bend

WHAT: Two nights of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every year in Telluride, Colorado. The tour will soon visit Bend at the Tower Theatre on February 22-23 with films that explore themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission: using the power of film, art, and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. Each night will feature different films!  

Proceeds from the event will benefit The Environmental Center, a local non-profit organization that works to embed sustainability into daily life in Central Oregon. The Environmental Center helps people live, work, play and learn in ways that will ensure a healthy future for people and the planet.

“Mountanfilm always reminds me why I love being outside,” said Mike Riley, Executive Director of The Environmental Center. “The mix of films about adventure, culture, and environmental issues is a great fit for Central Oregon. We’re thrilled to bring it back for the 16th year.”

The event includes a raffle sponsored by Mountain Supply, Crow’s Feet Commons, Cubicle, and Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, with prizes that include backcountry ski packages and surf packages. Raffle tickets will be sold in advance online, and each night at the event.

This event is presented by The Gear Fix. Other event sponsors include: Hydro Flask, Lonza Pharma & Biotech, Spork, Area Rug Connection, Bend Craftsmen Company, Blaise Cacciola Architect, Central Oregon Radiology Associates, Dream Home Building and Design, Skjersaa Group, 92/9FM, The Source Weekly, and Wall Street Suites.
