We’re sure you’re inundated with Christmas and New Year activity celebration plans so we’re jumping right to February 10th as a date to lock in your Sydney diary. It’s something to look forward to in 2017 so you can speed right through murky January and be inspired by Telluride MountainFilm: a festival of stories, ideas, people and aspirations all focusing on incredibly advanced solutions for our potentially livable world in the future.
The festival runs a series of high energy movies, all narrated to follow the topic of adventure. Nonfiction movies will focus on climbing, political & social justice issues, the environment and culture. These amazing documentaries run way ahead of the average docudrama as they bring together narrations by global figureheads – from change makers, to visionaries and award winning athletes.
Each festival around the globe, Sydney included, will feature gallery walks, outdoor programs & presentations, interactive talks and open-discussion free community events.
The Aussie leg of the festival’s world tour will be launched at the St George Open Air Cinema. With a mind-blowing, visual backdrop spanning the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Skyline and Opera House, the festival will take you to new adrenaline heights. Telluride Mountain Fest tickets will be on sale from 12th December and it’s a first come, first best-seating set up. The prices have not been published yet but if you check their ticket page and love what you’re seeing, remember to follow the festival through Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Newcastle, back to Sydney again and get your tickets for the Hayden Orpheum Cremorne Picture Palace (right by our Cremorne Point Manor Lodge)…then through Queensland and Wollongong.
From December spinning to May (with Australia slap bang in the middle), other tour destinations include the good ole USA and New Zealand. Since 1979, the festival has been one of the most beloved in the docu movie circuits and has been quoted as ‘excitement, energy and anticipation to explore and take on the world.’
So book your Cremorne Point Manor accommodation and not only can you enjoy the festival in February, but also return to our Manor for the nearby March screening. And if you think it can’t get any better, take a look at our short hotel video. After the movies, sit back on our guest balcony and enjoy the Harbour skyline again while you work on Plan B to improve Planet Earth. No big feat and no major pressure on your shoulders, right :D
