The Mountainfilm Festival may still be more than two months away, but the annual event held in Telluride, Colorado continues to get even more enticing. The organizers of the festival, which skillfully blends art, culture, adventure, and environmental activism, have announced a number of special guests who will be on hand to make this the best Mountainfilm ever.

Aside from the previous guests who were announced for the Moving Mountains Symposium, the film fest has added the likes of Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortensen, environmental activist Tim DeChristopher, and everyoneโ€™s favorite mountaineer, Ed Viesturs, amongst others.

Mountainfilm is scheduled to take place from May 28th to the 31st, and while they havenโ€™t announced the line-up of films just yet, you can bet it will be an impressive list of adventure movies that will span many different topics, including climbing, mountaineering, paddling, and more. Keep your eyes peeled on this page on the Mountainfilm website for updates on the full list, which will be coming in early May.
