Mountainfilm Announces Special Guests For 2011

MFW09head 46

The Mountainfilm Festival is gearing up for another great year, with the 2011 edition of the event scheduled to take place May 27th-30th in Telluride, Colorado. Each year, the event gives adventure filmmakers an opportunity to display their latest creations while also tackling some of the important global issues of our time as well.

One of the hallmarks of Mountainfilm is that they always have great guests on hand to talk about their experiences in the field, and 2011 looks like it’ll be no different. Speakers scheduled to attend include Dan Austin, co-founder of 88Bikes, National Geographic Explorer in Residence Wade Davis, and climber/mountain guide Freddie Wilkinson, just to name a few. Check out the special guests who have been announced so far by clicking here, and stay tuned for more guest announcements leading up to the festival at the end of May.

If you’d like to attend Mountainfilm, you can purchase tickets by clicking here. Organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out as well, so if you’d like to attend in that capacity, which still earns you passes, you’ll find out more by clicking here.

I’m hoping that I’ll get the opportunity to attend Mountainfilm this year, if my schedule allows. Is anyone else planning on being there? It might be a great place to connect!
