MountainFilm Gallery Walk, Friday, May 22, 3:30 - 6:30

May 11, 2015

This year’s roster includes National Geographic photographer Carsten Peter, climber and illustrator Jeremy Collins, Afghan photographer Farzana Wahidy, and Democratic Republic of Congo-based historian and artist Monique Stauder, among many others. Mountainfilm 2015 will host two artists-in-residence: night sky photographer Ben Canales and wilderness painter Emilie Lee. The festival will also include two Telluride artists: mapmaker Clay Wadman and painter Ally Crilly.

“It’s been great fun to put together this eclectic lineup of artists this year, and I’m particularly excited about our Afghan artists, some of whom are traveling from Afghanistan for the festival,” said Mountainfilm Festival Director David Holbrooke. “I also think our artist-in-residence program is really strong.”

Many of the artists are associated with films or presentations, and there will be a special exhibit in honor of Mountainfilm’s 2015 symposium theme: Afghanistan.
