Events

The Backcountry Film Festival is a celebration of the human-powered experience and a gathering place for the backcountry snowsports community. Funds raised at each screening stay in the local community to support human-powered recreation and conservation efforts, winter education and avalanche/safety programs and to raise awareness of winter management issues.

Check out the Festival’s full tour schedule here and the film line-up can be found here.

We believe in the power of humans and their spirit. Our mission is to manifest that power in communities through stories of activists, adventurers, and the outdoors to inspire and activate. Film lineup here.

This is the screening benefitting El Sendero Backcountry Ski and Snowshoe Club. The films will be available to watch until Feb 10, 2021. Please visit our tour page for details on your local screening.

BCFF is hosted virtually and/or in-person by local grassroots groups, backcountry retailers, and other community members. We highly encourage you to attend your local screening or intentionally choose what screening you purchase tickets for (and if you don’t have one, reach out so we can schedule one for you!).

Funds raised go back to your local backcountry community, so it’s vital you “show” up from the comfort of your own home for the host(s)/location(s) that are near and dear to your heart. 

The Backcountry Film Festival is a year-round, community program presented by Winter Wildlands Alliance that brings messages relevant to WWA’s mission and on-going stewardship, policy and advocacy initiatives throughout every season. A collage of human-powered stories and backcountry-inspired experiences, BCFF brings wild conversations and inspires action to communities that celebrate the present while looking towards the future.

The 16th Annual Backcountry Film Festival will be screening documentaries and ski movies about athletic pursuit in the mountains, artistic vision, friendship, and how the snowsports community is adapting to a changing environment.

Interested in hosting a screening of our 2020-21 BCFF season? Virtual and in-person screenings are currently being scheduled. Please visit our tour page to find your local screening or email Melinda Quick to set yours up.
