Mountainfilm on Tour Grand Junction takes stage at Avalon
Real stories — action-packed, scenic, rejuvenating or inspiring — and perspectives will fill the screen with Mountainfilm on Tour Grand Junction.
Fourteen films will be shown at the event that begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, at Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Advance tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, students and members of the military. Advance tickets can be purchased at wccongress.org, Summit Canyon Mountaineering and Rapid Creek Cycles. All tickets cost $15 at the door.
Along with viewing the films, those who attend can stop by a number of booths and learn about various community groups and how to get involved, said Marie Mitchell, development coordinator for Western Colorado Congress, which is hosting Mountainfilm.
Those who attend can help others by bringing four cans of food for the Food Bank of the Rockies and will be entered into a drawing for door prizes, she said.
There also will be live music with Thomasina and Friends, and the evening’s special speaker will be Harrison Topp, a first-generation farmer and operator of Topp Fruits in Paonia, who is featured in the film “Conservation Generations.”
“Conservation Generations” as well as the films “Waking Dragons,” “Chocolate Spokes” and “Leche y Miel” share a connection to Colorado.
