Mountainfilm: The Winners

Mountainfilm is at once the most refreshing and exhausting event of the year. For four days 2,000 guests do everything they can to watch all 73 films, listen to the 18 panel discussions, and shake the hand of each of the 29 authors at the book signings. Between events everybody jockeys for position to talk to the most inspiring--writer Bill McKibben, musician Prudence Mabhena, activist Tim DeChristopher--of the countless inspirational people who attend Mountainfilm. And I think everybody leaves better for it. This year, Outside sent seven editors and Outside TV sent half a dozen staffers into the fray. Tomorrow, we'll post a list of their favorite films, but today, here are the eight films that won awards. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all the filmmakers.
