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 23-24 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, connecting with nature, learning life lessons, and having fun with family and friends,” said Mike Riley, Executive Director of The Environmental Center. “The mix of films about adventure, culture and environmental issues is a great fit for Bend. We’re thrilled to bring it back for the 15th year!”

The event includes a raffle sponsored by Mountain Supply, Crow’s Feet Commons and other local businesses with prizes that include a backcountry ski package. Raffle tickets will be sold in advance online, and each night at the event.

Event sponsors include: The Gear Fix, Hydro Flask, Smolich Nissan, Spork, Central Oregon Radiology Associates, Deschutes Brewery, Dream Home Building and Design, Lonza Pharma & Biotech, Moementum, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Area Rug Connection, Aaron Fulcher, Broker, Blaise Cacciola Architect, Bend Dental Group, Engle Apiary, Skjersaa Group, Wall Street Suites, 92/9FM and The Source Weekly.
