(Pueblo, Colo. | 8 April 2024) - After a three-year hiatus in Pueblo, Mountainfilm on Tour is back in Southern Colorado for four showcases April 18-20 in the Buell Communications Center on the CSU Pueblo campus. Showcases will be held in the recently revamped TV and film production studio at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, with a special Family Feature matinee Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are free or by donation and can be reserved online through  or

The showcases will present 35 short films over the four timeslots. The audience can expect eight to ten films ranging from 3 to 26 mintues, with each showcase lasting around 2 hours. Saturday evening’s films will include Spanish subtitles, which is new this year to Mountainfilm on Tour. The last time CSU Pueblo presented Mountainfilm on Tour was as a virtual event in 2021.

“We’re ready to bring Mountainfilm back in-person to Pueblo and Southern Colorado this year and for years to come. The recent addition of Spanish subtitled films [Saturday evening] as an option for our audience along with improvements we’ve made to the department’s facilities and program make this an ideal time to welcome the community back to the campus of CSU Pueblo” said Jon Pluskota, Chair of Media & Entertainment. “Not only are the films great, but students from SOCO Student Media will also gain hands-on experience running the event, which is a centerpiece to our program,” Pluskota said.

Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and incredibly inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado. The tour will visit CSU Pueblo with films that explore themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission of using the power of film, art, and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.

"We're excited to bring Mountainfilm on Tour back to Pueblo. I'm so grateful to partner with the CSU Pueblo Media and Entertainment department to share award-winning and emerging filmmakers' work from Colorado and around the world” said Hope Logan, Mountainfilm Tour Director.
