CLIMB. RIDE. SLIDE. FLY. FIGHT FOR YOUR ENVIRONMENT. INSPIRE. GO HIGHER THAN YOU'VE EVER DARED TO GO.
The Bozeman Ice Festival is proud to bring the Adventure Film Festival to Bozeman once again. Join us Thursday, December 7 and Friday, December 8 in the beautiful Emerson Crawford Theater for an exciting series of films. Check out the film lineup below.
As an international community of risk takers, provocateurs, artists, dreamers, athletes, activists…every year the international Adventure Film selection committee selects the very best and most inspirational films that cover risks both mighty and absurd; tap the fringes of the unknown; and portray those experiences that bring us to the edges of our seats with our hands over our eyes or our fists in the air. Adventure Film celebrates, supports and “ties in with” those who wish to inspire and fire the creative kilns of transformation and awareness. We believe in the power of the story, the narrative of adventure and awakening. We believe we have an opportunity and responsibility to challenge and change the world we live in.
