The Greater Arkansas River Nature Association and Central Colorado Conservancy are teaming up once again to bring an evening of film from Mountainfilm on Tour. Mountainfilm is a dynamic organization with a festival of films, people, stories and ideas that celebrates indomitable spirit, educates and inspires audiences, and motivates individuals and communities to advance solutions for a livable world.
The Buena Vista festival will take place on Friday, October 20 at the Buena Vista Community Center. Doors open at 6:00 pm, films begin at 7:00 pm.
PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE or at BV and Salida Chambers
The evening will include just over 2 hours of films including 10 films. Here is a sampling:
Fix and Release – Each year, hundreds of turtles are admitted to the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, a donation-fueled medical clinic that
administers to the ancient and fascinating reptiles. Hit by cars, damaged by boats or mauled by predators, they come in broken. And under the expertise of Dr. Sue Carstairs and her team, the reptiles are nursed back to life (when possible), their babies are hatched and raised, and more turtles are released to the wild than are admitted.
Ice Call – Sam Favret – At the Mer de Glace glacier on Mont-Blanc, freeskier Sam Favret gets abstract with a surreal landscape of frozen flumes, runnels, caves, features and walls, giving whole new meaning to the notion of skiing in “icy conditions.”
The Salida festival will take place at the Salida High School Auditorium. Doors open at 6:00 pm, films begin at 7:00 pm. There will be a different line-up of films each night.
