The Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival premiered over the weekend. Featuring local filmmakers, the festival celebrates art and promotes inclusive discussions about current issues. Films focus on a variety of topics, ranging from conservation efforts to amazing experiences held by some filmmakers. For example, co-director Rachel Cox’s film “She Breathes: Wind Cave Search and Rescue” focuses on her experience being lost in the wilderness as a teenager. Along with films, the festival includes art exhibitions, virtual reality, special guests and music.
A unique aspect of this year’s festival is the opportunities given to filmmakers to highlight indigenous culture. The founder of Apache skateboarding company Douglas Miles is featured as the subject of a short film titled “The Mystery of Now.” Over half of the films shown on the last day of the festival focus on the importance of indigenous voices.
