Educate. Enlighten. Engage! Join this unique collaborative program between Telluride's Mountainfilm Festival and Telluride Academy! Mountainfilm comes to Telluride to start off our summer season and with it comes an army of incredible films, passionate film makers, energized activists and inspiring champions of global issues. The Mountainfilm For Students program is your ticket to a unique festival experience that gains you access to film viewings, intimate Q & A's with film makers, and lively discussions and debates about what truly makes a movie that matters. Participants in this program are charged with the responsibility of ultimately choosing (and presenting) the 2019 Student Choice Award at the closing ceremonies on Memorial Day.
This program will meet on an average of 5 hours a day. Time will be spent watching films, creating criteria for critiquing, meeting with film makers and participating in lively discussions and Q & A session. Saturday, Sunday and Monday lunches are included in the price as is a student pass for the entire festival. Participants are invited to participate in many of the other activities that will occur during the festival not included in the student program. A detailed itinerary will be provided closer to the start of the festival.
