What is Mountainfilm? from Mountainfilm in Telluride on Vimeo.

Started in Telluride in 1979, Mountainfilm has become the United States’ premier festival celebrating achievement in adventure, culture, and environment.

A QUICK HEADS UP from David Page: “If Mountainfilm isn’t already on your personal radar, get it on there. Super solid community. The best vids out there every year.”

They’ve just announced their submission call for 2012:

“We accept and screen feature and short films – mostly doc but some narrative — on a broad range of subjects. Of course, we are always interested in work that focuses on mountains, mountain culture and mountaineering but are also partial to films about people who are dedicated to changing the world.”

Early Deadline: December 16, 2011

Final Deadline: February 3, 2012

Festival Dates: May 25-28, 2012
