Virtual MOUNTAINFILM for Students
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
Bud Werner Library brings Mountainfilm for Students home to Steamboat's kids! That's right, a Mountainfilm On Tour lineup designed to stream at home with kids 12 and under (although we're pretty sure everyone will love these films) before we gather LIVE in Library Hall for our annual Mountainfilm on Tour presentation on Dec. 15
Kids, films and mountains are a pretty good combination. As important as films and the ideas they generate, however, is the reminder that people on both sides of the camera—adventurer and those who document such deeds—are folks our children may grow up to be. Steamboat Springs is uniquely positioned to provide access to these roles because of its terrain, community and resources. Mountainfilm for Students, therefore, in its mix of elements, is designed to inspire and educate the younger crowd.
