Come see how Ben Knight creates his masterpieces and screen his latest 2019 Oscar Qualifying short Documentary “The Last Honey Hunter”.

Former Telluride local Ben Knight was first inspired to make documentaries as a young man working behind the projector at Mountainfilm, and has gone on to become one of the festival’s most celebrated filmmakers, equally loved for his gorgeously precise cinematography as his irreverent sense of humor. His films include the viral hit Denali (Mountainfilm 2015), the feature DamNation (Mountainfilm 2014), produced in conjunction with Patagonia; as well as classics like Running Down the Man (Mountainfilm 2013) and Red Gold (Mountainfilm in 2008).

Knight, along with his producing partner Travis Rummel, runs Felt Soul Media. Rummel and Knight also made the films Senior:82 Winters in Telluride, Kamchatka Steelhead Project (both Mountainfilm 2016) and Katie(Mountainfilm 2018). He lives in a schoolhouse near Howard, Colorado, with his wife, chickens and two cats.
