To guide a year-round comprehensive celebration of independent film for the community, visitors and filmmakers by presenting diverse film experiences in an authentic mountain environment.
Since its opening event in 1981, the Breckenridge Film Festival has celebrated the art of filmmaking. Each year a unique and varied array of independent films, premieres, receptions, educational programs and retrospectives honoring featured guests takes place high in the Colorado Rockies.
One of the oldest film festivals in the country, the BFF is a 501(c)(3), private, non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. Funding for the Festival comes from local public and private grants, sponsorships, fundraising events, individual contributions, in-kind assistance, and revenue from tickets and merchandise. More than 150 individual volunteers, local theaters and other venues are involved in this annual event.
What a brilliant festival. I felt so honored and received a first class experience as a filmmaker. The kindest staff and volunteers working so hard and flexibly when challenges occurred. Can't imagine a more beautiful setting for a festival like this. Thank you so much!
