The Mountainfilm Tour is stopping in Soldotna today, with a screening at 7 p.m. at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.
Mountianfilm is a documentary film festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colo., with a selection of those films going on tour around the country. Mountainfilm organizers bill the festival as “using the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.”
Joyce Cox, of Soldotna, is hosting the Soldotna stop of the Mountainfilm tour. She’s watched the films elsewhere for years and was so impressed she went to the festival in Colorado last May and decided to bring the films to Soldotna.
“I just feel like we all need to support the arts more and this is another opportunity that we haven’t had in our community for these types of art films,” Cox said. “This is just another art film that is part of our society that can make society better and hope for change for a better world.”
