Spruce Peak Arts presents Mountainfilm on Tour
Join us for two screenings featuring inspiring documentary short films in the broad categories of adventure, sports, environment and culture. All the films reflect the interests of the Stowe community spirit, and celebrate every local adventure and adventurer in our towns!
The 3 p.m. screening includes films on topics as varied as skiing, climbing, mountain biking, wild horses, and ecology.
Tickets: $20 adults, $10 students and seniors / Kids 12 and under are free.
The 7 p.m. screening feature films on topics including mountaineering, boarding, running, activism, and biking. We’ll also have two very special VIP guests in attendance – Simon Perkins (Director) and Jon Wilson (subject), of Broken which will be part of the Saturday 7pm screening. Jon Wilson lost a leg to cancer at 23. He found joy some years later by developing a solitary routine of skinning and climbing up a ski mountain on his remaining leg, at night, to ski down. Wilson wrote and narrates this tone poem about perseverance and the unexpected gift that came from having been “broken.” Following screening of the film there will be a brief Q&A with Simon and Jon.
Tickets: $20 adults, $10 students and seniors / Kids 12 and under are free for all screenings.
Get a VIP experience with an All Access pass. Passholders receive tickets to all screenings and an invitation to a private VIP reception at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday to meet the VIP guests, Simon Perkins and Jon Wilson, in a more intimate setting with a chance to learn more about them, their film, and their work. Festival passes are $75 for adults and $25 for kids 12 and under.
