A few years ago I realized I could only do work I believe in. For me, this means teaching yoga and working for organizations that I can get behind. Telluride Mountainfilm festival, in its 36th year, has been sharing inspiration through film since its inception. What started as a festival for climbers and mountain lovers has evolved into a festival for artists, athletes, filmmakers, activists and the curious. There is something in the alchemy of this combination that produces an unforgettable experience.
This year, our theme is Afghanistan, a topic that’s explored through the perspective of photojournalists, poets, filmmakers and adventures who are from, or have explored the country. It’s such a gift, for a tiny mountain town, to have a consolidated group of people with diversified experiences come to our hometown and share their stories of the world. Years past have focused on population, food and wilderness.
Working for Mountainfilm is it’s own whirlwind. You start with a massive list of films, widdle it down to the very best, add artists and climbers, writers and the like. Then you work feverishly hard to put together the worlds largest puzzle and watch a festival come to life. It’s a crescendo that pulls you along – and the results are dazzling. The weekend takes on a pulse and a life of it’s own. There are things we can anticipate but the really special experiences are born of the present moment.
