(Ojai, CA | 9/23/2017) – Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and incredibly inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado. On Saturday, September 23, the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy is teaming up with Mountainfilm on Tour to bring the original films and the experience of the annual festival in Telluride to Ojai with films that will explore the themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission: using the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.

A Mountainfilm presenter will guide the audience through the program providing insight on the films, filmmakers and subjects. The complete playlist can be found at To learn more and join the conversation, visit or
