Taos Mountainfilm Festival features films of adventure, culture and wildlife of the world's remote regions. Mountainfilm also examines threats to the environment and human rights.
The Festival presents mountaineering films and personalities, as well as symposia, photography exhibits, and readings from mountaineering literature.
Through still and moving images, Taos Mountainfilm Festival is committed to conveying the inspiration to be found in wild places.
There may be no better town on Earth to hold this festival than Taos, New Mexico. Taos has a special blend of landscape... everything from high Alpine peaks to upper Sonoran desert. The terrain affords the outdoors enthusiasts world-class skiing, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, rafting and kayaking.
Through its remote location, pristine air quality and low-impact development, Taos has earned the reputation of an environmentally aware community. Taos also has deservedly gained a name for having a 'spiritual awareness.' These facets of Taos character are reflected in the festival programming.
