Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming back to Durango on September 16-17! Rocky Mountain Wild and our partners at San Juan Citizens Alliance are bringing the spirit and energy of outdoor adventure and mountain culture to Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College.

Each night will feature different films, so be sure to get your tickets for both! If you register for Friday’s showing, you will see Precious Leader Woman, the story of snowboarder Spencer O’Brien. Watch as she comes full circle to embrace her identity and Indigenous heritage as she pushes forward, bringing her heart and soul to her next challenge, the backcountry.

If you register for Saturday’s showing, you will see Izembek. There has been pressure for nearly four decades to build a road through Alaska’s Izembek National Wildlife Refuge. Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Gerrit Vyn explores the area to document its wildlife and wilderness, before it’s too late.

On top of great films, there are also opportunities to take direct actions, win gear, gift cards, classes, and epic adventures in the raffle and silent auction, and speak with representatives from Rocky Mountain Wild and San Juan Citizens Alliance about what our organizations do.

Proceeds from this event benefit Rocky Mountain Wild and San Juan Citizens Alliance, and are used to help keep Wolf Creek pass wild!

A huge thank you to our local sponsors: Pine Needle Mountaineering, Alpine Bank, Rochester Hotel & Bar, SolarWorks, Tailwind Nutrition, and Zia Taqueria.
