Telluride’s Mountainfilm on Tour in Invermere
Telluride’s Mountainfilm on Tour is coming to Invermere Feb. 9 and 10.
The event showcases culturally rich, adventure-packed, and incredibly inspiring documentary films selected from the Mountainfilm Festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. It takes place over two days.
“This is an event that I have followed for years, and have always wanted to bring it to Invermere, and try to build on the success that the Banff Mountain Film nights have had there over the past few years,” said Bill Johnston, Telluride’s Mountainfilm on Tour Invermere organizer.
