Where: Asia Society Texas Center.
The 411: In its third year in Houston, this traveling version of the acclaimed Mountainfilm fest in Telluride drew a sellout crowd for both nights of screenings of a dozen independent short films exploring distant corners of the earth and talks with key film participants. Special guests were John Dau with Duk County, and David Morton with High and Hallowed: Everest 1963, each of whom led discussions on their respective documentaries.
Who: ICEtalks founders and the forces behind the Houston screenings Shushana and Jack Castle plus Janet and Paul Hobby, Elaine and Dennis Block, Minnette and Peter Boesel, Drs. Mary Es and Rich Beaver, Lauren and Geoff Harrison and Audrey and Steve Marnoy.
