Telluride Mountainfilm is more than a film festival. They select approximately 85 films each year from around the world, and they are curated alongside guest presentations, a symposium, parties, scheduled conversations, book signings and musical events to create a full weekend event like no other. Repeat festival attendees have come to love the events as much as the films. The festival begins on Friday morning with a symposium that's followed by the Gallery Walk on Friday afternoon. Films and presentations begin Friday night and run through Monday afternoon. During the festival weekend, guests can enjoy Town Talks, the Ice Cream Social, the Reading Frenzy, special programs at The Library, free movies under the stars at Base Camp Theatre and programs comprised of short films, such as Adrenaline and Kidz Kino. The Closing Picnic & Awards Ceremony closes out the annual festival on Monday afternoon. Choosing the films and scheduling events requires time. The complete Telluride Mountainfilm 2017 schedule will be posted in mid-May.
