Following a hiatus caused by Covid-19, Mountainfilm on Tour returns to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, this November 5 and 6 for its 21st anniversary. The two-day festival of nonfiction films dedicated to educating and motivating audiences about issues that matter takes place in WaterColor Inn and Resort’s Marina Park Amphitheater. The spectacular outdoor venue provides the scenic backdrop to Mountainfilm’s selection of inspiring documentary films. An event presenter guides the audience through the program, providing insight on the films, filmmakers and subject matter.
Mountainfilm, which started in 1979, is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Each Memorial Day weekend, the festival screens leading independent documentary films from around the world to audiences in Telluride, Colorado. Since not everyone can get to Telluride, the festival launched Mountainfilm on Tour, which travels around the world presenting the best-loved films from the Colorado festival.
For its Florida appearance, Mountainfilm on Tour has selected a venue which combines luxury with a back-to-nature vibe. The only Forbes Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond beachfront hotel in Northwest Florida, the WaterColor Inn is the centerpiece of the WaterColor community, 500 acres on the Gulf of Mexico including beachfront, pine forests and dune lakes. Guests who stay at the Inn during Mountainfilm on Tour can take advantage of a Mountainfilm Festival Package which includes lodging and tickets to both nights of the festival.
