LONDON: MOUNTAIN FILM ON TOUR

Mountainfilm is America’s most prestigious mountain film festival which takes place in Telluride, Colorado.

It’s a documentary film festival showcasing non-fiction stories about environment, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues that matter. Along with exceptional documentaries, the festival goes beyond the film medium by bringing together world-class athletes, change makers and visionary artists for a multi-dimensional celebration of indomitable spirit.

Mountainfilm, which includes interactive talks, free community events, a gallery walk, outdoor programming and presentations, aims to inspire audiences to action on worthy causes.

The Mountainfilm World Tour 2019 film selection will be announced towards the end of July. Watch this space!

As in previous years the film will be introduced by Ben Ayers, the dZi Foundation’s Executive Director and a National Geographic film-maker in his own right.

Start: 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:00 pm)

Tickets: From £11.00 available from Eventbrite

Come and enjoy the walled garden created in a Mediterranean courtyard style with the walls painted in a warm shade of terracotta.

The walled courtyard garden: Image taken in mid-May when the Ceanothus puget blue was in full bloom. The Liliodendron tuliperfera (Tulip Tree) was a specimen Trish brought with her when she moved to Cumbria from the north of Scotland twelve years ago - she is hopeful that 2019 will see it flower!
