Award-winning filmmakers, visionary conservationists, and up and coming names in the outdoor industry are heading to Boulder, Colorado this October 5-7 for the Adventure Film Festival. This festival is a three-day event for adventurers or filmmakers alike. With a combination of film screenings and outdoor activities, this film festival will get your adrenaline going.

The Adventure Film Festival — presented by Meridian Line — is taking over Boulder to showcase this year’s most influential and transformative independent films. Films such as Tales by Light 3CONFLUENCE, In Perpetual Motion and Dear Mr. President will all be showcased (go here for the full lineup).

During the day, take part in outdoor activities designed for festival goers. From fly fishing to downhill mountain biking to an indigenous peoples history urban hike, there is something for everyone.

There is also an Adventure Film Festival street fair on Saturday and Sunday to enjoy dancing, live music and other activities. There will be workshops, cooking demos and even surprise celebrity guests. This is the community set up by the late Adventure Film Festival founder — Jonny Copp.

“Adventure Film started in 2003 as a dream in the heart of the Himalayas. In a tent during a storm, on a handful of scratch paper, Jonny Copp sketched out the vision of a community-based, mission-oriented, outdoor adventure film festival that tied indie film with art and activism. He created the film festival by bringing together adventurers, artists, filmmakers and activists who believed in the power of the story and the narrative of adventure to change and challenge the world we live in.” said Phyllis Copp — festival director and mother of Jonny Copp.

The Adventure Film Festival is the perfect place to experience some of the best independent films from this year while being able to take off and experience the world that the Adventure Film Festival loves.

The Adventure Film Festival kicks off October 5 taking place at the Boulder Theater at  2032 14th Street,  Boulder. For more information, go here.
