42nd Annual Mountain Film Festival coming to you this year. Stream 100 films for just $75.

For 41 years, people have gathered in Telluride over Memorial Day weekend to celebrate adventure, big ideas and indomitable spirit at Mountainfilm. This year, in light of COVID-19, that annual gathering will look a little bit different. With overwhelming support from filmmakers, special guests and a down-for-anything community, Mountainfilm is going virtual, bringing its 42nd annual festival to living rooms around the world. The 2020 festival is also extending its dates to May 15–25 — providing audiences with 10 full days of inspiration. 

Riding the wave of this unforeseen adventure, Mountainfilm’s lineup of films and speakers have been carefully curated to touch viewers and bring hope. From the safety and comfort of home, viewers can stream over 100 films, a symposium and additional presentations with the new $75 Bivvy pass, or purchase individual films, shorts programs or presentations for $10 each.

“We hope that making Mountainfilm available to experience at home with family or roommates will be a welcome and inspiring change,” said Executive Director Sage Martin. “Get comfy, grab your popcorn and buckle up for some life-altering films.”

Similar to renting a movie on Apple TV, Smart TV or Amazon, viewers can join in from their desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or through the TV via Chromecast, AirPlay or the Apple TV App. The nitty-gritty can be found in the Virtual Festival Help Guide.

Just as in years past, the 2020 virtual festival will feature an outstanding lineup of films and presentations that will leave attendees inspired and energized.

“The magic of Mountainfilm is that it touches people, inspires change and provides hope. Now more than ever, we all need to do our part to create a better world,” said Martin, who notes that Mountainfilm, like many important nonprofits, is turning to the community for support during this challenging time. By purchasing a pass or making a donation, you’ll help ensure that Mountainfilm comes back strong in 2021.

    MORE: PASSES TO THE 2020 ONLINE FESTIVAL ARE ON SALE
    NEW FESTIVAL DATES: MAY 15–25
    Mountainfilm will be offering our 2020 festival lineup through a secure online platform from May 15–25. The new Bivvy pass will give you full access to over 100 films, a symposium and additional presentations for $75. You also have the option to purchase individual films, shorts programs or presentations for $10 each.

    If you have ever rented a movie from an AppleTV, Smart TV or Amazon, the Bivvy pass is pretty similar. Here’s how it works:

    Your pass allows you to unlock each program one time.
    Once you unlock a program, you have seven days to push play.
    Once you push play, you will have 24 hours to complete the screening.
    Once you complete the screening, the possibilities are endless.
    As you might have guessed, pass sales provide the majority of our annual income. Offering our content at a discounted pricing and the shift to an online platform will have a significant financial impact. We would be grateful if you would also consider making a tax-deductible donation to Mountainfilm. This year will surely prove to be the most challenging in our 42-year history. Donations will go a long way to ensure that Mountainfilm endures and comes back strong in 2021.
