The Adventure Film Festival in Boulder, Colorado is an international forum for the best and most inspiring independent films of the year.

With award-winning films from around the globe‚ adventure art and powerful speakers‚ the annual Adventure Film Festival in Boulder continues to inspire and awaken us all to the world we live in.
Patagonia is again the title sponsor for the event that was started by the late, great Jonny Copp. This will be the first year without Jonny’s presence at the festival but producer/director Mark Reiner and his amazing staff have busted their butts to bring you an incredible lineup of films and activities. Special events include a family and kids show with Patagonia ambassador Lynn Hill, artwork from climber Renan Ozturk and a filmmakers’ workshop with the director of photography for The Cove.
Tickets are available now. Please visit http://www.adventurefilm.org for more information, the festival schedule and film trailers.
The festival will include footage from First Ascent: Point of No Return. This special episode of the new Nat Geo Adventure series follows alpinist Jonny Copp, his climbing partner Micah Dash, and videographer Wade Johnson on their fateful expedition to the unclimbed east face of Mt. Edgar, in western China. The episode documents the lives of these climbers leading up to the expedition, and features extensive footage of the expedition recovered from the massive avalanche that tragically took their lives. This is Wade Johnson’s final masterpiece, and homage to three people who were an integral part of the Adventure Film family.
The festival includes Climbing films, surfing films, mountain biking films, ski films, kayaking films, environmental films, social change films, a film makers workshop and much more. Definitely worth the price of admission.
