Films

Mountainfilm on Tour's education program introduces students in K-12 public schools to essential environmental, cultural and social issues with age-appropriate film programs curated by a Mountainfilm staff member.

For middle- and high-school students, our playlists focus on compelling educational and inspirational documentary short films to get students thinking. These playlists target films that are timely, regionally relevant, or topics not commonly discussed or seen.

Films in these playlists include education materials developed by teachers to align with national standards. These educational materials can be downloaded and include filmmaker interviews, discussion questions, resources, activities and more aimed at engaging students and instructors in dialogue and in-depth exploration of identified topics.

For younger students K-5th grade, we offer a fun, engaging playlist with light educational content, focused primarily on outstanding, entertaining short films sourced from our festival.
