The Crested Butte Film Festival (CBFF) returns to Crested Butte, Colorado, Sept. 26-29 for another event packed with adventure and inspiration. Whether you’ve been considering attending the film festival or have yet to discover this exciting event, here are three reasons why you should attend this year’s CBFF.

Fall in Crested Butte is Phenomenal

Aside from the film festival offering a stellar lineup of features, documentaries and shorts, fall is the ideal time to visit Crested Butte. The leaves change from green to gold, making for a stunning backdrop to any outdoor excursion. Spend your free time away from the festival hiking through aspen groves, checking out the world-class mountain bike trails or fly fishing one of the many rivers nearby.

Festival Guides Make Customization Easy

Attending any big event can feel overwhelming at times. From booking lodging to constructing a schedule to hit the best events, a lot of planning goes into festivals.

CBFF, however, offers festival guides to alleviate the planning struggle. These festival guides include film recommendations and a list of events to attend, as well as suggestions for where to eat, stay and explore. Each guide is tailored based on categories such as “The Solo Traveler,” “The Adventurer,” “The Wanderluster,” “The Family” and much more.

CBFF Encourages Attendees to Make a Difference

Have you ever left a film screening utterly inspired to make a difference in the world? At CBFF, attendees are provided the opportunity to turn their inspiration into action. 

CBFF makes it easy to get involved with the organizations behind the film. With their ActNow program, attendees are encouraged to educate themselves on current affairs and social issues while helping to create change. At the end of each film, ActNow provides hands-on opportunities for festivalgoers to help the film’s respective cause — whether this is signing petitions, volunteering or making a donation.

The full film and event schedule will be released Sept. 1.
