Mountainfilm Festival Coming to Anchorage
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to change the world, or at least go play in it for a while. That’s right, Telluride’s MOUNTAINFILM on Tour, which features the best selections from America’s premier festival of mountain, adventure, cultural, and environmental film and video, is coming to Anchorage, January 16 and 17, 2013.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity! The program will include exhilarating and provocative works from around the world — some shorts as well as longer pieces, all featured during the MOUNTAINFILM Festival in Telluride, Colorado. The films showcase adventures from all over the globe, glimpses of other cultures, portraits of remarkable people, and animated masterpieces. MOUNTAINFILM presenter, Karla Brown will bring the films to life by setting each in its proper context, weaving a narrative thread to create a thematically distinct event.
MOUNTAINFILM is about ideas. The films tell us something about the world we live in now…and the one we’d like to live in. It is about global cultures and the landscapes they occupy. It is about a world where adventure is alive, history is important and people are passionate about what they believe. It is about environmental integrity and about a rich spirit of celebration. Please join us for these unforgettable evening’s.

About Alaska Film Group
The Alaska Film Group is a nonprofit trade industry group that promotes the film and television industry in Alaska. Our group was instrumental in helping to get passage of the original Film Incentive Legislation and most recently the 10 year extension of the Film Incentive. This incentive is crucial to bringing productions to Alaska. The film and tv industry in Alaska diversifies our economy, provides jobs, brings in additional revenue to our state, and creates more business opportunities for Alaska companies and service providers. We are committed to building our infrastructure and increasing our crew base so Alaska is a desirable filming location. The group has been in existence since 1991.
