14TH ANNUAL BACKCOUNTRY FILM FESTIVAL COMES TO SEATTLE AND THE MOUNTAINEERS

A celebration of winter sports and human-powered backcountry adventure, recreation, and advocacy/stewardship.

Calling all “go big or go home” winter enthusiasts! Get ready to get goosebumps while you “Ooh!” and “Ahh!” at the impact and importance of our winter wildlands through this collection of short films. The fourteenth annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival will show in Seattle on Monday, January 21st.


Produced each year as a celebratory, backcountry community event by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, the 14th Annual Backcountry Film Festival film line-up is full of snowy, cinematic adventure sure to inspire both the local backcountry and general communities. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving winter wildlands and a quality human-powered snow sports experience on public lands.


By partnering with groups like the Mountaineers at a local level, the Winter Wildlands Alliance raises funds for these groups and communities through the annual Backcountry Film Festival national tour. All funds raised directly benefit local projects and programs that perpetuate access and stewardship of public lands.

Adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture- you’ll find it all in this award winning lineup. Films in this year’s program include:

  • Ode to Muir (Festival cut), Teton Gravity Research

  • Ski the Wild West, Thomas Woodson and Drew Petersen

  • The Abbey, DPS Cinematic

  • The Backcountry Snowsports Initiative: Human-Powered, Wool Hat Creative Productions

  • Abandoned (Festival cut), The Road West Traveled

  • Blue, Aly Nicklas

  • I Am Here, David Hanson and Michael Hanson

  • Surfer Dan, Camp4 Collective

  • Searching for Christmas Tree, Lie Feng

  • Westward: Brennan Lagasse, KGB Productions
