Backcountry Film Festival, FDRD will be going virtual. Watch this incredible collection of short films themed around human-powered experiences in the backcountry from the comfort of your own home.
The film will become available at 6pm on Thursday, January 7th. Can’t make it then? You will have until 11:45pm on Thursday, January 14th to watch the film series. The cost is $20 for an individual and $40 for a household, and all proceeds benefit Friends of the Dillon Ranger District’s programming. We are also hosting an online auction

Produced each year as a celebratory, backcountry community event by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, the 16th Annual Backcountry Film Festival film line-up is full of snowy, cinematic adventure sure to inspire both the local backcountry and general communities. While we will not be together in person, this will still be a strong community event.
Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving winter wildlands and a quality human-powered snowsports experience on public lands. By partnering with groups like Friends of the Dillon Ranger District (FDRD) at a local level, the Winter Wildlands Alliance raises funds for these groups and communities through the annual Backcountry Film Festival national tour. All event ticket sales proceeds from this event will benefit FDRD!
The films will first become available at 6:00pm on Thursday, January 7th, but you will have until 11:45pm on Thursday, January 14th to views the films.
We will have an online auction running the duration of the festival to fundraise some more! More info to come on this, stay tuned.
