Boulder's Adventure Film Festival was founded by the well-known climber, photographer and storyteller Jonny Copp. As the story goes, he came up with the idea while hunkered down in a tent in the Himalayas during a storm. He envisioned a community outdoor adventure festival that brought together indie film with art and — as importantly — activism.
These 30-some handpicked films never fail to wow audiences. Gritty, profound, shocking, visceral and inspiring are just a few ways to describe them. Films are shown over two days at the historic Boulder Theater. Many of them are short (10 mins or so), so you get to experience a number of viewpoints in a short time frame. We're excited to see these gems and so many others:

Want to see the Boulder lifestyle up close and personal? Attend this festival! Grab some grub from food trucks and beer booths, see the latest gear from vendors, try a climbing wall, watch the films and see people's crazy a-ma-zing adventures, and hear from the filmmakers as they introduce the films. Even if you're a couch potato, you'll be inspired to go outside and have an adventure of your own.
This two-day interactive photography and filmmaking workshop is an unparalleled opportunity to learn from master creatives and world-class adventurers. Saturday will be spent in Boulder's Adventure Film School workshop studio learning tools and techniques for crafting your stories. Sunday, you'll put your skills to use in a day-long shootout.
