Flavourful adventure stories, fantastic films and free-style comedy improv equals a mountain of laughs! This evening features improv by the Mountain Improv Alliance and a short film by Colleen Gentemann. Hosted by Canmore’s own hilarious host, Scott Dumas!
The Mountain Improv Alliance (MIA) is Canmore’s local improvisational theatre troupe. With a membership consisting of all ages from teens to retirees, the MIA works to promote creative expression with weekly drop-in nights, workshops, and performances.
Colleen Gentemann started her career as a photographer because it was a way for her to do the sports she loves while keeping a roof over her head. She never really thought of it as a life long journey. Having just completed her BSc in Earth Science she always thought she would eventually “get a real job”… Until one day, she realized that a creative career was a perfect fit for her. She starting to get a growing interest in shooting video and after much debate she finally decided to take a documentary filmmaking program in Vancouver. She has worked with admirable brands like MSR, Gore-tex, Elan skis and Patagonia, numerous cat and heli ski operations all over BC, and incredible athletes from all over the world. Filmmaking has proven to be not only her work but also her play.
