    Call for Nordic Skiing Films

    Calling all Skinny Skis and Nordic Skiers!


    Winter Wildlands is looking for your Cross Country and Nordic films!


    Winter Wildlands Alliance is seeking entries for its 8th annual Backcountry Film Festival.


    The Backcountry Film Festival seeks to promote the work of grassroots filmmakers who tell compelling and entertaining stories of human powered recreation and environmental preservation. Do you have a compelling story, some quality footage and a keen eye for a fun, educational or juicy topic.


    Each year we hear from our attendees, "More Nordic!" So grab your camera and give us some great fun footage of your Nordic ski adventures.




    • Your film should be short-no longer than 20 minutes-and tell a thought-provoking, interesting story of human powered recreation or environmental preservation. Your film should take place during or otherwise relate to the winter. We're open minded about what kind of films we'll show: documentaries, fiction, animation and experimental films are welcome.


    • The Film Festival premieres in Boise November 2012 and travels during the winter months to more than 80 locations throughout the nation.


    • Submissions must be in DVD format, received in our Boise office by September 15 and include three copies.
