Thanks to all our filmmaker applicants to The Weight of Mountains, we are now in overdrive to select our filmmakers who will be a part of the film development residency and film festival over next winter. Applications for filmmaker residencies have closed, but we will soon release information about how you can be involved in our Symposiums and final Weight of Mountains film festival. Updates will be made as they happen on
