    Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival

    presented by: Winter Wildlands Alliance

    7PM

    Opening:DOORS OPEN AT 6PM

    $10 w/ fees $12 general admission

    Celebrates 10 years of Snow Less Traveled.  The Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival celebrates its 10th Anniversary with nine 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. From a single showing in Boise that first year, the festival has grown to include showings in locations throughout the United States and Canada and now in Antarctica, Europe, Australia and Asia. 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.

    This year’s program includes: Winner, Best of Festival, Out on a Limb from T-bar Films tells the story of Vasu, who’s love for skiing and the backcountry overcomes all obstacles.

    Best of the Backcountry Award winner, Powder Pilgrimage from Joey Howell, chronicles the ventures of two friends ski-bumming it to Valdez, Alaska, a trip we should all take once.

    Best Grassroots Film winner, Backcountry Baker by Jeremy Lurgio follows Labrador retriever Baker and his owner as they pursue their love of mountains through backcountry skiing.

    From the Road by Fischer Creative portrays the balance between liberation and limitation as a group of athletes come together to help a skiing comrade gain reconciliation with the Alaska peak where a 2009 accident ended his professional guiding career.

    Afterglow from Sweetgrass Productions is a revolutionary and visually spectacular film that brings a whole new light to skiing in the dark.

    95 to Infinity by Doglotion Media follows brothers Andy and Mike Traslin as they keep the torch lit for 95 months of winter turns.

    IRS Traverse by filmmaker Luc Mehl is fun and quirky adventure through the Alaska Wilderness
