Join us for a documentary adventure with the 2017 Mountainfilm on Tour selection of short documentary films from the most recent, annual festival in Telluride on April 6, 2018 at the Cheyenne Civic Center. An opportunity perfect for individuals ages 16 and up, Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and incredibly inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The tour will soon visit Cheyenne with films that will explore the themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission: using the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.
A Mountainfilm presenter will guide the audience through the program providing insight on the films, filmmakers and subjects. The films will be presented on a 26’ screen on stage. See the complete playlist here.

Mountainfilm for Students
Whenever and wherever Mountainfilm is on tour, the aim is to educate and inspire beyond our theater audiences. The Cheyenne Civic Center has reached out to Laramie County School District #1 to see if a partnership can be made to offer this initiative to local students. More information will be provided at a later date if this fits with LCSD#1’s educational curriculum. Mountainfilm for Students is a free educational outreach initiative that introduces students in K-12 public schools to essential environmental, cultural and social issues with age-appropriate film programs. Mountainfilm currently reaches over 20,000 students each year.
