Mountainfilm On Tour 2018

Saturday, November 3
Cook Memorial Theater
Program One  3:30 – 5:30 pm
Program Two  7:00 – 9:00 pm

SouthCoast Film Forum brought back Mountainfilm to the New Bedford Whaling Museum Theater on Saturday, November 3. This one-day, two-part festival of short documentaries featured culturally rich and inspiring films on climate change, agriculture, the migration of people and birds, and outdoor adventures.

Founded in 1979 and based in Telluride Colorado, Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Celebrating people, art, stories, and ideas, it uses the power of film to inspire audiences to create a better world. The annual festival tour goes to over 160 cities around the globe.

Last year’s two-part show in New Bedford was a sellout success, and enthusiastically received. Each program featured different films, and for the most immersive and rewarding experience, attending both sessions was suggested.

An intermission between programs featured a reception in the lobby with a cash bar and snacks or the opportunity to step out for a meal at one of many local restaurants.
