For the third year in a row, the University of Wyoming Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources and the Telluride Mountainfilm on Tour will present two nights of free environmental, cultural and adventure films.

The films will be shown Friday and Saturday, Oct. 10-11, at 7 p.m. at Laramie Gryphon Theatre, 710 E. Garfield St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The screenings are free and open to the public, and alcoholic beverages and other refreshments will be available for purchase.

Additionally, a set of films selected to appeal to children age 12 and under will be shown free during a Kidz Kino program Saturday, Oct. 11, at 4 p.m., also at the Gryphon Theatre.

Mountainfilm Program Director Emily Long will introduce the films for all three shows. Visit to see the film lineup.

The Mountainfilm Festival is held for four days each Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colo. The event is part film festival, part ideas summit and part jamboree. For 35 years, Mountainfilm has attracted leading independent documentary filmmakers, artists and photographers, conservationists, mountaineers, scientists, journalists and explorers from around the world to engage in the festival’s motto of “Celebrating Indomitable Spirit.”

Each year, Telluride Mountainfilm on Tour takes a selection of outstanding films from the Telluride Film Festival on the road to engage audiences who otherwise would not have an opportunity to experience them. Each year, the tour reaches some 30,000 people on five continents. Laramie is one of the few cities where the public can see the tour films for free.

The films’ local host, the UW Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, gives students, citizens and decision-makers tools and information to build sound, innovative, lasting solutions to complex environmental and natural resource challenges. For more information, contact Mandy Gifford at or (307) 766-6462.

Established in 1979, Mountainfilm in Telluride is dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating audiences about environments, cultures, issues and adventures. Working at the nexus of filmmaking and action, its flagship program is the legendary Mountainfilm Festival, a combination of films, conversations and inspiration.
