Who can enter a film?
You don’t need a degree from a film school. You don’t need footage shot while dangling precariously, camera in hand, from an ice wall in the Rockies. All you need is a compelling story, some quality footage and a keen eye for a fun, educational or juicy topic.
Your film should be short—no longer than 30 minutes—and tell a thought-provoking, interesting story of backcountry, non-motorized recreation or environmental preservation. Your film should take place during or otherwise relate to the winter. We’re open minded about what kind of films we’ll show: documentaries, fiction and experimental films are welcome.
Three awards (cash, goods, or a combination of both) will be given:
- Best of Festival
- Best Short Short (under 5 minutes)
- Best Environmental Message
Who will see my film?
The Backcountry Film Festival premieres in Boise, Idaho and travels during the winter months in over 100 cities worldwide and is seen by over 7000 outdoor enthusiasts.
