Backcountry Film Festival to Benefit GORC

The seventh annual world tour of the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival, taking place Friday April 6th with the films starting at 7:30pm, highlights the beauty and fun of the winter backcountry experience. Submissions come from renowned filmmakers who travel every corner of the globe to submit their best backcountry work, and from grassroots filmmakers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursion a and submit their best film short  The films are juried by a select panel of judges and the fop film are assembled into a 90 minute program.

Backwoods has 150 tickets available at $10.00 each and will be donating 100% of the proceeds to both GORC and Trailnet. Should all tickets be sold, the club has the potential to receive over $750.00 which will assist in the development of trails at Lost Valley, Greensfelder, and other general trail development.
