What is Mountainfilm on Tour ATL?
Mountainfilm on Tour ATL is a nonprofit that hosts film screenings in the greater Atlanta area, featuring films curated from the annual Telluride Mountainfilm Festival. The goal of TMF, and of our part in Atlanta, is to reach the greatest number of children and families possible.
We bring these films to Atlanta’s public schools at no cost because we have sponsors who fund our mission of educating the youngest amongst us about the environment, social justice, and a multi-cultural world. In our four years of presenting Mountainfilm on Tour-ATL, we have shown screenings to over 4,000 children in the greater Atlanta area.
Opportunities for Lower School Students
The lower school playlist, Kidz Kino, is a film program (typically 8-10 films that run 45-60 minutes) for kindergarten to fourth-grade students. It’s an engaging playlist with light educational content focused on outstanding, age-appropriate short films sourced from our festival. We are always onsite to MC, and work with teachers and students to bring out engaging conversation.
Opportunities for Middle/High School Students
We also offer a set list focused on educating, entertaining and inspiring students in middle and high school. These films are accompanied by educational materials provided by Telluride Mountainfilm Education Resources.
