2017 Backcountry Film Festival

 

 

Don't miss the Backcountry Film Festival, with unique films aimed to inspire winter adventurers to seek the snow less traveled. Produced by the Boise-based nonprofit, Winter Wildlands Alliance, the Backcountry Film Festival is renowned for its mix of professional and grassroots films – from well-known filmmakers who search backcountry corners across the globe to submit their best work to first-timers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursions.

The festival was created in 2004 to highlight Winter Wildlands Alliance’s efforts to preserve and promote winter landscapes for human-powered users. Funds raised stay in local communities to support like-minded, human-powered recreation and conservation efforts and to raise awareness of winter management issues, avalanche training/safety and winter education programs.

The annual world tour of the Backcountry Film Festival highlights the beauty and fun of the winter backcountry experience. This film festival features the seasons best ski films - promoting the work of grassroots filmmakers who tell compelling and entertaining stories of the backcountry, non-motorized recreation and environmental preservation.
