Our first episode of “Beyond Backcountry,” where we dive deeper into the films of the Backcountry Film Festival.

This season, the Backcountry Film Festival traveled to almost 100 towns across the country. It raised more than $150,000 for 80 nonprofits.

The Backcountry Film Festival is a turn-key fundraising event to raise money and awareness for organizations, backcountry retailers, university clubs, and other groups focused on protecting wild winter landscapes and recreation in their local communities.

It’s that time of the year: film submissions are open for the 15th annual Backcountry Film Festival!
