Backcountry Film Festival rolls into Breckenridge on Tuesday
January 22, 2018
With a night of inspiring short films focused on human-powered winter recreation, the 13th annual Backcountry Film Festival rolls across the big screen Tuesday in Breckenridge.
Doors open at 6 p.m., a raffle and social begin at 6:30 p.m., and the film starts at 7 p.m. at the Colorado Mountain College campus, 107 Denison Placer Road, Breckenridge.
Every year, the festival tours more than 100 cities, going from mid-November to late March.
Most basically, it's a night of short films designed to "capture the spirit of winter" and help out a couple good causes along the way. This year's event will support advocating for policies to preserve access wild lands and avalanche education.
The award-winning lineup includes films about adventure, the environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture and more. Films in this year's program include:
