Conservation and Inspiration at Telluride Mountainfilm

Over the Memorial Day weekend, we were fortunate to take part in one of Colorado’s signature high country festivals: Telluride Mountainfilm. Klean Kanteen has been a dedicated sponsor of this event for years because it isn’t just a film festival, it’s a thoughtfully curated experience that encourages an entire community to live their dreams of being the adventurers and change makers this world needs more of—and ditch single-use along the way. From a snowy filmmakers dinner to a summery closing picnic, the weekend was packed with astounding films, symposiums, talks, and mixers that stimulated conversation about adventure and conservation.

The films, as always, were the highlight of the weekend. To give you a taste of the ones that inspired us, we have put together a short list of our favorites.
