Crested Butte Film Festival

September 28, 2017 - October 1, 2017


Crested Butte Film Festival

Crested Butte Film Festival programs the best in world cinema and brings it home to a small-town environment. We’re committed to finding the most artful, moving, creative and provocative films and sharing them with our audience. We award creativity, daring, great storytelling and bravery, and create an intimate, relaxing festival for filmmakers and actors to show their work at. One hundred films are screened during the festival as well as one monthly film throughout the year. We program narrative and documentary features, narrative and documentary short films, outdoor adventure and children’s films.

Always “the last weekend in September”, the Crested Butte Film Festival inspires and educates our audience through films and discussions that spark creativity, cultural awareness, and social and environmental change. The four day festival, September 28 – October 1, 2017, shows one hundred films at multiple locations and brings the best of international documentary, narrative, outdoor adventure and short films home to Crested Butte – in addition to thirty visiting filmmakers and actors.  There are multiple types of tickets to suit the needs of any kind of film lover. For more information, passes and tickets visit the website.

Crested Butte Film Festival is a wonderland of transformation. This is an experience that you come into one way, and most likely leave another.

You may come for the films, but you’ll leave with new friends. You may come for the mountains, but you’ll leave with more memories than you can carry. You may come to get away and then not want to leave.

Everything is RIPE for your exploration: the programming, the people, the town, the inviting atmosphere. Here, you’ll find an experience that you can’t find anywhere else.

All-inclusive transformation is at home here and we can’t wait for you to come find it.

Please note: although not common, this schedule may be subject to change. Please check back. Also be aware of times in the ‘Other Locations’ column.
