Every Memorial Day, Telluride, Colorado hosts the Mountainfilm Festival, a showcase of films, talks and more about “issues that matter,” including environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice stories. Once the festival ends, the films hit the road. On Nov. 11, they come to the Rio Theatre. This year’s films cover Alaskan glaciers, one cyclist’s journey back from amputation, people who value experiences over income, BASE jumping, light pollution, one family’s refugee experience, and more.
