Grist goes to Mountainfilm
After a 2:30 a.m. wake-up call and a seven-hour road trip through the Rockies of Colorado, the Grist team finally made it to Mountainfilm Festival where we’re covering the goings-on for the next three days. Washington Governor Jay Inslee flew down to join the fun as well as Favianna Rodriguez, a 2018 Grist 50er. We’re excited to fill you in on all we learn, introduce you to new friends of Grist, and of course give you some recommendations on what movies you should be queing up.
