Mountainfilm on Tour to Arrive in Bend February 24 & 25

Jan 30, 2017 -

WHAT: A fundraiser for The Environmental Center, featuring two nights of inspirational documentary films with themes of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure. The event showcases the very best of Telluride Mountainfilm Festival, an annual film festival in Colorado with a mission to use the power of film, art and ideas 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. We help people live, work, play and learn in ways that will ensure a healthy future for people and the planet.

“Mountainfilm always provokes some great conversations, at the event and afterwards,” said Mike Riley, Executive Director of The Environmental Center. “The mix of adventure, culture and environmental issues from around the globe is a great fit for Bend. We’re stoked to bring it back for the 14th year.”

The event includes a raffle sponsored by Mountain Supply, Bend Electric Bikes, Crow’s Feet Commons and other local businesses with prizes that include a custom ski or snowboard package and e-bike. Raffle tickets will be sold in advance online, and each night at the event.

Event sponsors include: The Gear Fix, Rebound Physical Therapy, Hydro Flask, Spork, Smolich Motors, Bend Research, Deschutes Brewery, Central Oregon Radiology, Moementum, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Blaise Cacciola Architect, Engle Apiary, Area Rug Connection, G5, Dream Home Building & Design, Wall Street Suites, 92/9 and The Source Weekly.
