Community Spotlight: High Desert DEVO

Using the power of film, art, and ideas, Mountainfilm inspires audiences to create a better world. The Mountainfilm festival brings together a community of filmmakers and change makers, showcasing documentary films that celebrate adventure, activism, social justice, environment, and indomitable spirit. Each year after the festival, Mountainfilm On Tour hits the road, sharing the year’s most inspiring short films with communities worldwide.

All ticket sale proceeds from this event will go towards High Desert DEVO and their work to empower the youth in our community by fostering a lifelong passion for cycling, and to build confidence, compassion, and perseverance that they can carry into their lives and their interactions with their community.
