Mountainfilm on Tour- in C-U on March 31st

Champaign Surplus proudly presents the 18th Annual Mountainfilm on Tour — Champaign/Urbana, Tuesday, March 31st at 7 p.m. at The Art Theater in Downtown Champaign.

The Mountainfilm in Telluride film festival showcases leading independent documentary films from around the world, chosen based on Mountainfilm’s mission to educate and inspire audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving, and conversations worth sustaining. A selection of festival films then hits the road on tour.

We’ve put together an inspiring & action-packed selection of films once again for our 2015 showing. Including exciting, adrenaline filled films like Kelly McGarry’s Rampage where professional mountain biker Kelly McGarry recorded his run at the 2013 Red Bull Rampage with a helmet-mounted GoPro camera. As well as inspiring, moving films like Tashi & The Monk, a story that reminds us while there is a lot of darkness in the world, there are also beautiful shining points of light.

100% of proceeds from this event go to support the programs of Illinois: Operation Military Kids. IL OMK is a non-profit organization that works to make life better for our local military youth. A collaborative effort of a number of organizations including the University of Illinois Extension 4-H Program, Illinois National Guard, the Army Reserves, American Legion and others, IL OMK provides a wide range of recreational, social, educational and camp programs for the children of local Service members throughout the various phases of deployment.
