Boulder, CO, May 21, 2009 â€” Access Fund announces today that it will host a stop on the Telluride Mountainfilm Zero Emissions Tour on June 10, 2009 at the Boulder Theater in downtown Boulder, CO.
Since 2000, Mountainfilm in Telluride has traveled the globe educating and inspiring audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining. This celebration of the indomitable spirit is sure to incite change in local and global communities. In June of 2009, Telluride Mountainfilm is embarking on a new project: the Zero Emissions Tour, which is a 2,300 mile unsupported bike tour throughout Colorado, Wyoming & Utah.
The crew will ride to each stop along the tour sharing content from the film festival and recruiting others to join in the ride, getting more people out of their vehicles. This landmark tour will stop at The Boulder Theater on June 10th at 8pm to share their films and inspire members of the community to join the tour as they journey across the western states.
Ticket sale proceeds will benefit the Access Fund, part of Telluride Mountainfilm’s goal to help raise money for supported non-profits throughout the local communities on their tour. The Access Fund will host a raffle before the show for a chance to win some great outdoor gear, as well as a Limited Edition New Belgium Bicycle, graciously donated by New Belgium Brewery.
Tickets for the June 10th tour stop at the Boulder Theater are on sale now for $15 at http://www.bouldertheater.com/event_detail.php?id=1098. The show starts at 8:00pm. Doors open at 7:00pm.
