Sidenote: We are so appreciative of the amazing posts from our guest bloggers – and the generous spirit they embody to put thoughts down and share them with us every Friday. This week is an intermission for a shameless plug of one of the events we have planned for this year’s festival. Here’s the basics, but check it out in more depth at: Mountainflim Press Releases.

• Tribute to the late Sir Edmund Hillary: Renowned mountaineer and filmmaker, David Breashears will host a tribute to the eminent “mountaineer’s mountaineer” who passed away earlier this year. Guests close to Hillary will attend. Rarely seen films chronicling his life and exploits will be presented.
