Think even more snow
The Telluride Mountainfilm Festival comes to Homer in January, combining adventure, mountaineering, unique personalities and important messages throughout the movies.
Organizer Mike Illg said the films and ideas featured in the festival often result in changes in thought and new insights. Mountainfilm is about passionate people who take action — and spur others to get involved.
Films will be shown at the Mariner Theatre, Homer High School, with different films offered each night. The fee for the films is $10 per person, per show. A play list is coming soon, but in the meantime, find film descriptions at
Show No. 1: Thursday, Jan. 24, 7 p.m. (Winter gear/ski swap in HHS Commons at 6 p.m.) 
Show No. 2: Saturday, Jan. 26, 7 p.m.
