BACKCOUNTRY FILM FESTIVAL COMES TO HOMER
Celebrating the winter human-powered experience
The 12th Annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival will show in HOMER on Thursday February 9 at the Homer Theater on Pioneer Avenue. This screening is hosted by Alaska Quiet Rights Coalition and Kachemak Nordic Ski Club.
The Backcountry Film Festival is produced each year by Winter
Wildlands Alliance as a celebration of the human-powered experience and a gathering place for the backcountry snowsports community. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a nonprofit organization working at the national level to inspire and educate the backcountry community to protect and care for their winter landscapes. Funds raised at each screening stay in the local
community to support human-powered recreation and conservation efforts, winter education and avalanche/safety programs and to raise awareness of winter management issues.
The 2016-2017 Backcountry Film Festival will tour more than 100
cities from mid-November to late March. Immerse yourself in a night of films that capture the spirit of winter. Adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture- you’ll find it all in this award winning lineup. [Beer and raffle tickets will be available at this night of winter revelry.]
