Mountainfilm on Tour is coming to Damariscotta for the very first time. The show will bring a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed, and incredibly inspiring documentary films from the Mountainfilm festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colo. Mountainfilm on Tour will be held at Lincoln Theater on Tuesday, April 30.
The festival’s films will explore themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission: using the power of film, art, and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.
A Mountainfilm presenter from Telluride will be in attendance to guide the audience through the program, providing insight on the films, filmmakers, and subjects. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show will kick off at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets for Mountainfilm on Tour in Damariscotta are on sale now at the Lincoln Theater box office. Tickets are expected to sell out. The cost for the show is $10 per adult, $5 per child or student, and $25 per family. One can see the complete playlist at mountainfilm.org/tour/schedule.
Oxbow Brewing Co. beer and Lincoln Theater popcorn will be available for purchase. Savory snacks, treats, and seltzers will be provided by Great Salt Bay Community School PTO parent volunteers and available for a suggested donation. A beautiful Erik Minzner original painting of Pemaquid Point will be raffled off at intermission.
Mountainfilm on Tour in Damariscotta is a fundraiser for the Greenhouse Initiative at Great Salt Bay Community School. All proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase, installation, and maintenance of a freestanding on-campus greenhouse at GSB. The Greenhouse Initiative is grounded in a collaborative effort with Twin Villages Foodbank Farm and FARMS at the Y to involve students in the growing of food for their school and greater community.
Mountainfilm on Tour in Damariscotta also brings to town Mountainfilm for Students. Whenever and wherever Mountainfilm is on tour, the aim is to educate and inspire beyond our theater audiences.
Mountainfilm for Students is a free educational outreach initiative that introduces students in K-12 public schools to essential environmental, cultural, and social issues with age-appropriate film programs.
Mountainfilm for Students will be at Great Salt Bay Community School during the school day on Tuesday, April 30 to share two curated film programs with grades kindergarten through four and five through eight. Mountainfilm for Students currently reaches over 25,000 students each year.
Mountainfilm on Tour in Damariscotta is hosted by the GSB PTO and Friends of GSB in partnership with Great Salt Bay Community School.
