Our Second annual Amateur Film Festival is going off at the Wilderness Exchange in Denver once again this year. We are giving away a GoPro 2 to the winner. This is a beer drinking dirt bag event and was a ton of fun last year. So you Colorado locals should submit this year's edits to Hans and come out for a good time. Check it out.

The Second Annual Friends of Berthoud Pass
Amateur Film Festival
presented by Wilderness Exchange Unlimited, 2401 15th St, Denver
Thursday, April 4th 2013, 8:00 pm

This concept originated last spring when we came up with the idea of getting local skiers and riders together to highlight their best homegrown edits and share some laughs. We assembled a series of short (three to five minute) videos and capped off the evening with Kyle Miler’s documentary. The event was a raging success. We packed the house, raised awareness and some funds for our grassroots avalanche education program and everyone had a blast.

We’re expecting this FREE event to be as great as the first one. We have several sponsors on-board who’ve donated items for a raffle and Upslope will provide the beer. The winning film takes home “Best of the Fest” bragging rights as well as a GoPro Hero 2 camera. There will be a raffle with lots of great prizes for the “Rest of the Best” including items from BCA, Fly Low, Wilderness Exchange Unlimited and many others.

Proceeds benefit FOBP’s grassroots avalanche education program.


Send your best edits to [email protected] no later than March 30, 2013. There is a strict limit of five minutes per entry. Please keep your content snow-related (skiing, boarding, sledding, ice climbing, etc) Submit as many entries as you like. Festival producers will select 10-12 contestants. Winner of “Best of the Fest” will be chosen by audience applause. Our judging panel reserves the right to call the winning entry in the case of a draw. Or maybe they’ll settle it with Rochambeau– it’s kind of up to them. Contact us with any questions. Otherwise get your junkshow together and show us what ya got.

This is set to go down this Thursday. You can still put in your submissions. This will be a good time.
I'll be there.

Any other Denver SBFers planning on going?
Acro, I didn't catch if you were there. Strong submissions from the snowboard contingent. Good times for a sure. Looking forward to next years party.
No, unfortunately I was half way through watching the Nuggets game on TV when I realized I was missing the film festival. I even left my self a reminder so I wouldn't forget. :thumbsdown: I'm actually pretty mad at myself for missing this this one.
