Shining Mountains Film Festival

Oct. 13 & 14 – Shining Mountains Film Festival

Shining Mountains Film Festival is a documentary film festival produced by the City of Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House, in partnership with Aspen Film and Aspen Ute Foundation, focused on fostering Native American and indigenous peoples’ storytelling through film and live events in a way that supports and engages indigenous media arts; authentically captures national and international indigenous voices; highlights the work of indigenous filmmakers and performers for diverse audiences; and breaks barriers of racism by replacing stereotypes with credible representations of Indigenous peoples’ history, culture, and community.

As a celebration of Native American culture and history, Shining Mountains Film Festival returns October 13-14, 2019 to commemorate Indigenous Peoples’ Day which, as of 2017, the City of Aspen now celebrates in place of Columbus Day. Tickets for Shining Mountains Film Festival are on sale NOW!
