Need some more inspiration to get out and adventure? Our friends at Aspire Outdoor are bringing the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival on its first national tour of Australia and New Zealand in February-April 2017 and we are giving away a double pass to your local screening.
Held every year since 1979, Telluride Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival that showcases nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues in Telluride, Colorado, USA. Mountainfilm aims to educate, inspire and motivate audiences.
The inaugural tour will focus on the best outdoor adventure films from the annual festival in Telluride including some inspiring stores about female adventurers.
In The Mysteries, follow Australia’s own Krystle Wright as she goes on a tenacious, and perhaps crazy, quest to chase down an elusive BASE jump shot and provides a glimpse into the kind of singular passion that drives people to reach their goals, regardless of what stands in the way.
Angel Collinson will show the audience why she won the award for the Best Female Freeride Performance at the International Freeskiing Film Festival in Angel Annihilates Alaska. While in the Great Siberian Traverse Ingrid Backstrom will travel via the Trans-Siberian railway for a ski trip that is as much about trans-continental travel as it is about shredding in all its forms: backcountry skiing, resort skiing, powder skiing and so much more.
The tour will launch on 10 February 2017 at St.George OpenAir Cinema, situated on Mrs Macquaries Point against a backdrop spanning the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Sydney city skyline.
The Mountainfilm World Tour will then reach 15 locations across Australia and New Zealand throughout February-April 2017. The experience of the Telluride Mountainfilm will leave you buzzing with excitement, energy and anticipation.
Tickets are on sale now or for the one-off launch event via St.George OpenAir, click here!
She Went Wild is working with Aspire Outdoor to explore the possibility of putting on a dedicated female focused cut of Mountainfilm following completion of this year’s tour.
The winner will be supplied with tickets to the screenings at Randwick Ritz or Cremorne Orpheum in Sydney or otherwise to your nearest screening.
Please feel free to share this with your friends and I look forward to seeing you at a screening of Mountainfilm on Tour!

The last few days have been a tough with a capital “T”. I’ve been unmotivated, unenthusiastic about most things that would have been biting at the bit, and lethargic. o instead of feeling bad that I don’t have enough internet to download re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy onto my laptop, I have created a list. It started as just listed reasons as to why I should love my body, but I soon realised that this is applicable to any person, of any gender, of any age.
