ABOUT ADVENTURE FILM

The Adventure Film Festival was created in 2004 by the legendary climber, photographer and storyteller Jonny Copp (1974-2009). It all started as a dream in the heart of the Himalayas. In a tent during a storm, on a handful of scratch paper, Jonny sketched out his vision of a community-based, mission-oriented, outdoor adventure festival that tied indie film with art and activism. Jonny believed in the power of storytelling, especially through the narrative of adventure, with the goal to awaken change and encourage others to challenge and improve the world we live in. With the help of friends, family and industry professionals, this gritty "down home" event is now an internationally recognized arena for the most inspiring adventure and environmental films of the year.

Adventure Film’s compelling line-up is handpicked by a dedicated, Boulder-based selection committee from entries submitted from all over the world. With the support of filmmakers, sponsors, non-profits, partners, volunteers—all adventurers — Adventure Film Festival will feature the 2017 award winners on a World Tour traveling from Boulder to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, DC, Chile, India, Nepal, Israel, and several major cities in between.
