6th Annual Throckmorton Theatre Mountainfilm December 1-3, 2017

Our 6th annual adventure documentary film festival, Throckmorton Theatre Mountainfilm (TTMF), returns to Mill Valley December 1-3, 2017 with even more culturally rich, adventure-packed, and inspiring films. All films have been carefully selected from Mountainfilm, and curated alongside guest speaker sessions, parties and scheduled conversations. The result is a three-day event like no other.

TTMF screens feature documentaries on environmental issues, epic adventures, eye-opening politics and humanitarian causes. We set the stage for important conversations about the world we live in and we seek to inspire audiences to action on worthy causes. TTMF brings together special guests, filmmakers, film subjects, artists, activists, and other luminaries for a celebration of the indomitable spirit.

FAMILIES: Children ages 6 to 12 will enjoy the Kidz Kino program, which is geared towards this age group.  Older children will enjoy and learn from most of the regular festival programs. Documentaries are not given ratings, but much of the content would garner a PG or PG-13 rating. Pay special attention to film descriptions; some films delve deeply into challenging content — such as war, slavery, or poverty — and the description will help you make a decision based on your child. 



In 2011 Stephen Bove, a Mill Valley resident, came to Lucy Mercer with the idea of producing a local Mountainfilm festival. Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival based in Telluride, Colorado that began in 1979 and today has become a dynamic, inspiring organization, one whose mission closely aligned with ours. Bove who had been an enthusiastic attendee in Telluride felt it would be a perfect fit here. The two approached Mountainfilm with the idea of starting a festival in Mill Valley, new territory for the festival, and found nearly a perfect match. Throckmorton tapped the talented Julian Kaelon and together with Stephen Bove and Mountainfilm, the first Throckmorton Theatre Mountainfilm Festival (TTMF) was held in 2011. TTMF was launched!

OUR AIM: to build an informed and engaged community through intimate conversations that connect cultures, preserve environments and inspire activism.

Each year TTMF has grown in depth and reach and we are continually motivated by the good work that Mountainfilm is producing. And each festival Stephen Bove and the staff at Mountainfilm craft another impossibly better lineup of films that inspire us and set the stage for important conversations about the world we live in. We invite artists, filmmakers and activists, not only to hear their stories and share our own, but also to flood our town with the dynamic cross-fertilization that is the inevitable outcome.
