Mountainfilm on Tour is coming to the Carrollton Center for the Arts, January 4, bringing a selection of adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films selected from Telluride, Colorado’s annual Mountainfilm festival.

“We are excited to welcome this high-caliber event to Carrollton again this year,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “Our altogether original community is the perfect audience for Mountainfilm’s unique and inspiring films.”

Founded in 1979, the event is one of America’s longest-running film festivals, held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride. Mountainfilm is also a nonprofit organization that celebrates stories of indomitable spirit and aims to inspire audiences through film, art and ideas.

The Carrollton event will feature a collection of documentary short films that align with Mountainfilm’s mission to use the power of film, art and ideas to encourage audiences to create a better world. A presenter will guide the audience through the program, providing insight on the films, filmmakers and subjects.

Doors open for the event at 6:30 p.m. and the show will kick off at 7:00 p.m. See the complete playlist at www.mountainfilm.org/tour/schedule. Purchase tickets for $5 at carrolltonarts.com, by calling (770) 838-1083 or at the center’s box office at 251 Alabama Street in Carrollton.
