The Back Country Film Festival will have two presentations in Northeast Wyoming, with one stop in Buffalo and the other in Gillette. Aaron Palmer gives us the details.
Presented by the Wyoming Wilderness Association and the Winter Wildlands Alliance, the sixth annual festival features short films from amateur filmmakers shot in wilderness areas and back country all over the world.
According to Bradley Lee, Community Organizer of the Wyoming Wilderness Association, the films are a celebration of human-powered outdoor fun of all kinds, whether skiing, snowshoeing or hiking.
The film festival is one of many events that the Wilderness Association puts on during the year. Lee explains what the organization hopes to do.
The first festival will be in Buffalo Wednesday, Jan. 12 at the Buffalo Theater. A potluck gathering is scheduled at 5:30 in the evening and the films start at 6:30. The festival will show the following night in Gillette at Gillette College's auditorium also with a potluck at 5:30 and the films following at 6:30. Tickets are $5 for adults, 12 and under are free and advance tickets are available at the Wyoming Wilderness Association office in Buffalo at 16 S. Main, or they can be picked up at the door the night of the performances.
The potluck gathering will also feature raffles and door prizes. Lee said everyone is welcome to enjoy the gathering and the films.
