MountainFilm in Houston
When the annual Mountainfilm on Tour festival rolls into Houston each year the audience is guaranteed a combination of adrenaline fueled sports themed shorts and films that raise questions about the world ecology.
This year’s program is no different. Now in its fourth year the two-day event, February 20 and 21 at the Asia Society Texas Center (1370 Southmore Boulevard), spotlights shorts and documentaries taking the viewer from the foothills of the Himalayas to the beaches of California to mountains in Colorado to karst regions of China. A full schedule can be viewed at the Mountainfilm website: http://www.mountainfilm.org/tour/stops/mountainfilm-on-tour-houston-tx
Each night features approximately eight films, many with post-screening discussions. Dinner and libations are available before the show and during intermission. Some of the intriguing titles include: The Karsts of China, a 7-minute short, takes you to a geographically surreal part of China known for its beautiful landscapes. And the eye-opening documentary about “America’s free-flowing rivers” DamNation.
