June and July Climbing Events

--June 10 -- Boulder, CO -- Telluride Mountainfilm Zero Emissions Tour

--June 11 -- Seattle, WA -- Adventure Film Festival

Climb. Ride. Slide. Fly. Fight for the environment. Inspire. Go higher than you've ever dared to go...

Adventure Film is a film festival based in Boulder, Colorado. Now in its fifth year, Adventure Film was created by a coalition of adventurers, artists, filmmakers and activists to explore the power of storytelling, especially through the narrative of adventure. The organization aims to mobilize people through an awareness of the world. Hence the tagline, "Make Your Own Legends."

Every year the international Adventure Film selection committee chooses over thirty new films from approximately two hundred entries from around the world. Awards Winners in nearly a dozen categories are selected, ranging from "Extreme Sport" to "Activism through Adventure." Adventure Film covers risks, mighty and absurd, the unknown and those experiences that bring viewers to the edge of their seats.

The Mountaineers is pleased to host the first Seattle appearance of Adventure Film on Thursday, June 11, 2009. The doors open at 6:30 pm, the show starts at 7 pm. Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased through the Mountaineers Bookstore, or by calling 206-521-6001.
