Telluride Mountain Film Festival

Wednesday, April 6, at The Egyptian Theatre


Outdoorsy films allow you to live life on the edge vicariously--mountain climb without the heights, snowboard without the cold and enjoy outdoor views from the warmth of your theater seat.

The Telluride Mountain Film Festival is offering Boise a treat-filled trifecta: independent movies, beer and the Egyptian Theatre, all in one evening. Hosted by the Selway-Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation, the best films of the Colorado-based festival will be shown in Boise for one night only.

Sit back, relax, drink beer from Sockeye Brewing Company and focus your energies on picturesque, outdoor films that highlight the environment, adventure and the inexhaustible human spirit. Before the show, attendees can also take part in the pre-party at BODO's Helly Hansen from 5-6 p.m., which will provide free beer, a live DJ and special sale items to help promote the festival.

Throughout the event, raffle tickets will be sold to raise funds for an environmentally conscious cause. Just a few dollars in tickets will not only help trail maintenance and wilderness stewardship in the Frank Church River of No Return and Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness areas but also you increase your chances at winning free swag. Raffle prizes include a two-day rafting trip and gear from NRS, Patagonia and Osprey.
