Backcountry Film Festival

Looking out over a vista of wildflowers makes the heart and spirit soar. For many of us, that same lift has a winter parallel – found on the edge of an untracked winter slope sparkling with snow crystals. For this reason (and many others!), we celebrate wild winters every year by hosting screenings of the Backcountry Film Festival.
Join Wild Montana’s Island Range Chapter in Great Falls on Friday, Feb. 9, to see this year’s 10 inspiring films and celebrate wild winters. Some lucky attendees will win prizes donated by local businesses, including equipment rentals from Big Horn Outdoor Specialists, lift tickets for a day at Showdown, and more. Sierra Nevada Brewing has also graciously donated a variety of their beers.
It doesn’t get much better than free beer, backcountry films, and the chance to win new gear to enhance your winter stoke!

Presented by Winter Wildlands Alliance, the Backcountry Film Festival celebrates human-powered recreation and wild winters. For nearly 20 years, the festival has sparked conversations about the human connection to wild places, encouraged grassroots activism in the face of warming winters, and inspired stewardship of our wild public lands and waters. Enjoy films featuring backcountry experiences, conservation efforts, and personal stories of reflection and discovery while traversing wild landscapes.
All proceeds from the Great Falls screening support the Island Range Chapter. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the wonder of winter.
