The 2011 Mountainfilm Festival is now just a week and a half away, and organizers for the event, which goes down annually in Telluride, Colorado, have posted the complete line-up of films and guests that will be on hand to celebrate. Over the past 30+ years, the festival has earned itself a reputation for being one of the best events around, and that is reflected in the diversity of films and guests that will make an appearance there this year.
You can check out the complete list of films by clicking here. There are literally dozens of options to choose from, and I'm not sure how attendees will find time to screen even a fraction of the movies that look interesting. Some of them are shorts of course, but I'm still amazed at the quality of the line-up and the variety of topics that are covered. I'd be interested in catching The Swiss Machine, which profiles Ueli Steck and Towers of Ennedi, which I've mentioned before. That short film follows a group of climbers who go to Chat to take on some unclimbed rock faces there. Both films look fantastic, but there are plenty of others to catch as well.
Amongst the guests who will be attending the Mountainfilm Festival this year are the Baffin Babes, who you may recall skied across Baffin Island back in 2009. Their joined by adventurers like kayaker Ben Stookesberry, climber Freddie Wilkinson, and environmentalist David De Rothschild, amongst numerous others.

The festival is scheduled to run from May 27-30 and passes are still available to purchase. It looks like it'll be another great event again this year. Anyone planning on going?
