Mountain Film Festival


The award-winning documentary film “Run Free – The True Story of Caballo Blanco” will be screening at the 2016 Mountain Film Festival in Mammoth Lakes, CA.

Director Sterling Noren’s previous film “Beyond the Border – Riding Solo in Mexico” won a Sir Edmond Hillary Award in the Action Sports Film Competition at the 2011 Mountain Film Festival. The film featured the director’s first encounter with Micah True (Caballo Blanco) at the 2009 Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, which led to the production of the feature length documentary “Run Free”.

The town of Mammoth Lakes is located in the heart of California’s eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range, in Mono County. Mammoth Lakes is 325 miles north of Los Angeles, about the same distance east of San Francisco, and about 164 miles south of Reno, Nevada.
