Entering its 16th year, the Telluride MountainFilm on Tour returns to WaterColor Inn & Resort’s Marina Park outdoor amphitheater November 4-5.

The festival showcases a selection of films from the International Film Festival and furthers the MountainFilm mission of exploring cultures, preserving environments and promoting adventure.

This year’s film selections cover a wide range of topics, from an epic ski journey across Russia in “The Great Siberian Traverse” to the cultural evolution of Bolivia’s female wrestlers in “The Wrestling Cholita.”

“MountainFilm has been a vital component of our events calendar for the past 15 years,” said Andrew Czarnecki, managing director of resort operations for St. Joe Club & Resorts. “The support of this community and film enthusiasts alike make the festival stronger each year. We look forward to continuing this tradition for many more years to come.”
