The primary mission of the Wasatch Mountain Film Festival is to both question and celebrate the human experience and reconnect us with nature.

About WMFF

Started in 2014, The Wasatch Mountain Film Festival is a week-long outdoor adventure and environmentally documentary film festival based in Salt Lake City, Utah. WMFF is Utah's premiere outdoor film festival and attracts the world's best outdoor documentary filmmakers and attendees from near and far.

Why The Wasatch

The Wasatch Mountain Film Festival was conceived from the idea that the Wasatch Mountains are home to one of the most incredible mountain communities in the world. Each year millions of visitors travel from around the globe to experience this special place with unparalleled ease of access to the mountains. While our community already hosts to other world-renowned film festivals, none are focused on showcasing the spectacular outdoor environment so many of us call home. We hope that you join us next year as we showcase some of the best mountain films from around the globe.

  • Ben White

    As a film maker, this festival is awesome. The team is quite helpful getting films all organized, watched, etc. etc.

    They have built a really cool audience over the years that is super fun to engage with and recently did a film maker meet and greet. It was neat feeling like I was part of a community making something happen rather than just a guy who submitted a film.
