Mountainfilm on Tour comes to Bigfork March 2

| February 28, 2023 12:00 AM

Documentary film festival Mountainfilm on Tour is coming to Bigfork on March 2 as part of their five city tour in Montana.

The Mountainfilm Festival showcases stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues. It’s held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films curated from the festival.

Mountainfilm on Tour will kick off in Bigfork at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts. The tour will then circumnavigate the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex with shows in Great Falls, Helena, and Missoula, before returning to the Flathead at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish on March 16.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation has been hosting Mountainfilm on Tour as a fundraiser since 2007. The Foundation provides active wilderness stewardship of the 1.5-million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex through hands-on volunteer opportunities and wilderness education programs. Proceeds from the tour will support over 60 trail and weeds projects the Foundation has planned for summer 2023.

Tickets for Mountainfilm on Tour in Bigfork and Whitefish are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. They can be purchased online at bmwf.org/mountainfilm. For both events, doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m. See the complete playlist at www.mountainfilm.org/tour/schedule.
