Another exciting addition to Savannah’s cultural calendar, now in its 3rd year.
From the Mountainfilm website:
Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating and inspiring audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining.
Started in 1979, Mountainfilm in Telluride is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Through the years, in and out of trends and fads, the festival has always been best described by one unchanging word: inspiring. Far more than any other adjective, that’s how festival audiences describe their experience.
This weekend’s Mountainfilm lineup in Savannah features compilations of short documentaries at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20th and at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21st. There’s much more on the Mountainfilm on Tour-Savannah website.
Note that earlier on Saturday there’s also a bike ride in conjunction with the Savannah Bicycle Campaign and a Q&A with filmmakers. The casual 7-mile casual ride through downtown with filmmakers from With My Own Two Wheels, about bicycles in Africa, begins at 11 a.m. in the empty lot at Park and Bull. Click here for more info.
