More Guests Announced For Mountainfilm Festival
The Mountainfilm Festival is inching ever closer to its May 27th start date, and organizers have announced more guest speakers for the event which is held annually in Telluride, Colorado.
Previously, it had been announced that speakers such as Dan Austin, of 88bikes, and climber/guide Freddie Wilkinson, amongst others, would be on hand to share their stories and experiences. Now the list of guests has grown nicely with some excellent and interesting people being added to the mix. For instance, Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson is back this year as a judge and he'll be joined by Ken Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch and photographer George Steinmetz, who once spent 28 months hitchhiking through Africa.
Perhaps most intriguing of all is Tim DeChristopher, an environmentalist who has been convicted in a U.S. Federal Court for making false bids on energy leases in the western United States. He'll speak about the importance of taking action on global climate change and how to use non-violent, civil disobedience to make changes. Less than a month after his appearance at Mountainfilm, DeChristopher faces sentencing for his actions. What exactly that sentence will be remains to be seen.
