Mountainfilm on Tour to Arrive in Bar Harbor at The 1932 Criterion Theatre on September 30

Bar Harbor – Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every year in Telluride, Colorado. The tour will soon visit Bar Harbor at The 1932 Criterion Theatre on Saturday, September 30 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. This year, Maine-based filmmaker Bridget Besaw will be in attendance for a Q&A following her film “Guided” about the life philosophy of Maine Wilderness guide Ray Reitze.

“We look forward to hosting Mountainfilm on Tour each year,” said Criterion Media Manager Kristin Leffler. “The selections give a glimpse into how life can be lived so differently all across the world, yet also emphasize the universal themes that unite us all. We are especially excited to have a Maine filmmaker in attendance for the screening of her film that showcases the gentle and wise spirit of a fellow Mainer.”

The show kicks off at 7 p.m. Tickets and a full film schedule are on sale now at General admission is $12 and admission for students and seniors is $10. Tickets will also be available at the box office starting at 6 p.m. the evening of the event.
