Our Mission Statement:
" Dedicated to filmmakers who spark awareness of mountain cultures, fragile environments, and the passion and perseverance of global explorers."
Mountains / Waterways / Culture / Environment
We believe in celebrating mountain culture through film and offering a meaningful local social engagement with our audience.
We strive for a balanced variety of films that create an engaging pace via films that focus on the environment, mountain cultures, adrenaline and those inspiring characters who keep challenging human powered endevours. (Canadian spelling!)
As we are a two night event we have limited time and our format allows only two feature films. So we generally don't choose films over 60 minutes.

Best of Fest - $500

There is a small cost to submit.
Submissions are open starting in September.
Our selection committee completes selection in the last weeks before the festival.
We prefer shorter films 60 minutes and under.
Submit a short bio and explanation of your film.
Please submit a link to a downloadable file.
