Mountainfilm on Tour, brought to you by the Arts Council of Big Sky, is a collection of films meant to inspire and educate audiences to create a better world. This year we expand to TWO NIGHTS! We will kick off Year 2 of this annual event at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017 at 6 p.m. with a catered pre-party, WITH ON-VIEW OF ART FROM CREIGHTON BLOCK GALLERY ART SHOWING THE “GRIT OF LIFE” BY ARTIST TODD CONNOR, followed by a feature length film, curated from the year’s Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado. On Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, we will feature a night of short films, the best from the 2017 Mountainfilm festival, at the Lone Peak Cinema starting at 6 p.m. with a pre-party, films to follow, and then a post-party with live music.
Friday’s film will be the feature length documentary, Charged, about local Bozemanite and chef Eduardo Garcia and his recovery and survival from being shocked by 2,400 volts of electricity in a freak accident deep in the Montana backcountry. This will be a special night, and we are pleased to have producer Dennis Aig and cast member Jennifer Jane on hand to talk about the film and answer questions! THIS PERFORMANCE WILL BE HELD AT THE WARREN MILLER PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, 45465 GALLATIN ROAD IN BIG SKY (SAME BUILDING AS THE HIGH SCHOOL). Seating is general admission, no reserved seating. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
On Saturday night, we welcome a series of short documentaries selected just for Big Sky that were shown at the 2017 Telluride Mountainfilm event that took place this past May.
