Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival, Sandpoint, Idaho
Winter is upon us and once again the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival is answering the call here in Sandpoint, Idaho at the beautiful Panida Theater at 7:00 PM on November 30th, 2012.  Wax those skis, tune those boards and gather your friends!  There is no better way to celebrate the fun and beauty of winter than with the Backcountry Film Festival, a true celebration of winter played and lived as told thru the seven unique films included in this 8th annual showing.  This North Idaho stop will be nothing short of  exceptional including an excellent raffle, sponsored silent auction, local beverages, and mountains of winter inspiration to prove once again that winter rocks in North Idaho!  As a special addition representation will be on hand from the Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center, Idaho Fish and Game, and Selkirk Outdoor Leadership & Education (SOLE) to share what each organization and agency has in store for the coming winter months.

The films themselves come from renowned filmmakers who search backcountry corners across the globe to submit their best work, and from grassroots filmmakers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursions and submit their best film short. The entries are juried by a panel of judges and the top selections are assembled into a 90 minute program.

The festival was created eight years ago to highlight Winter Wildlands Alliance's efforts to preserve and promote winter landscapes for human-powered users. From a single showing in Boise that first year, the festival has grown to include showings in locations throughout the United States, Canada and overseas to Antarctica, Europe, Australia and Asia. Funds raised stay in local communities to support like-minded, human-powered recreation efforts and to raise awareness of winter management issues, avalanche training/safety and winter education programs.

In particular funds from this years event in Sandpoint will go to support Selkirk Outdoor Leadership & Education (SOLE) and their Winter Fieldwork Experience programming, including their Winter Wildlands Alliance SnowSchool - the nations largest on snow winter ecology program.  SOLE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to empower their participants to become active learners and responsible stewards of their communities and its environment.  As such SOLE designs and facilitates affordable and accessible experiential and outdoor education programming for its immediate and surrounding communities.
