Grab your winter adventure list and goggles to tune into a night of human-powered winter celebration at the 12th Annual Backcountry Film Festival. The Festival is co-hosted by the Boise-based Winter Wildlands Alliance and Discover Your Forest, the local non-profit partner of the Deschutes National Forest.
The wildly successful Backcountry Film Festival will be hosted at Sisters Movie House in Sisters on January 25th, 2017. Working with our partners at Winter Wildlands Alliance, who will host an additional screening on January 26nd at the Volcanic Theatre Pub in Bend, we are hoping to raise much needed funds for our Project SNOW field trip programs for Central Oregon students.
Produced by Winter Wildlands Alliance, Backcountry Film Festival is shown at more than 100 screenings around the world. The festival is renowned for its collaboration with filmmakers from all corners of the globe, ranging grassroots to professional. The festival provides a fresh line-up committed to get everyone from van dwellers to weekend warriors awakened to the powder turns as well as environmental initiatives happening all around the world.
Funds raised for Discover Your Forest will go to Project SNOW (Studying Nature Outdoors in Winter), a program dedicated to providing a rich outdoor education experience for over 2,000 kids in Central Oregon.
What is featured in the Backcountry Film Festival This Season? The films feature awe-inspiring stories, aimed to connect with and gain insight to what is happening in the places we go to get fresh air and fresh powder.
