This year, once again, we brought the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival to India. We have been the international tour host for the festival since 2017.
Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals, beginning in 1979. Their mission is to use the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.
Through the years, Telluride Mountainfilm festival has always been best described by one unchanging word: inspiring. Year-round and worldwide, they take a selection of festival films on the road. They present both single-event and multi-day shows, hosted by a wide array of organizations, including schools and colleges, corporations, community groups and theater operators. Through the tour, they touch the lives of some 65,000 people every year and visit more than 100 locations on five continents. One of the films, “Minding the Gap“, was nominated for an Oscar this year.
The the event was hosted in Delhi on the 11th and 12th of April at the Oddbird Theater and Foundation and at the Boulderbox . Apart from this, we had a number of educational screenings at several schools, including American School, and universities across Delhi. Previously we have also done screenings at St. Stephens’ College, Shiv Nadar University and Vasant Valley school. Our main sponsor/supporter for the event this time was Boulderbox, as well as Make My Trip.
