The Minds of Mountainfilm interviews take place every year at the annual Mountainfilm festival and features a selection of the adventurers, artists and activists who join us as our special guests. From extreme athletes to cutting-edge scientists, explorers, authors and the best of independent documentary filmmakers, these friends of Mountainfilm represent a uniquely diverse and inspiring cadre of thinkers and doers. In the interviews they address issues that matter in their particular realms of experience and expertise - issues that, almost invariably, matter a great deal to all of us. The 2014 Minds of Mountainfilm interviews were shot and edited by Telluride TV, Telluride’s local, non-profit, television station.
