February 16-19, 2017 | Flagstaff, AZ
The Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival highlights a collection of the most inspiring and thought-provoking social, environmental, outdoor-adventure and indigenous films from around the world. The host city of Flagstaff — just one hour south of the Grand Canyon and two hours north of Phoenix — is a thriving university town with over 65,000 recreationally and culturally minded residents. The majesty of the San Francisco Peaks, the ecological diversity of the Colorado Plateau, and the proximity of the Hopi and Navajo Nations provide for an ideal setting to celebrate documentary film.
For the past 15 years, outdoor and film enthusiasts from across the state, region and world have enjoyed a high-quality film experience while soaking up the breathtaking beauty of Northern Arizona. The Festival was created in 2003 by a group of friends who shared a passion for cultural and outdoor-adventure documentary films. It began as a volunteer-run effort and has remained one ever since, with any profits from the event being reinvested into future festivals and donated to local non-profit organizations doing work in our community and beyond.
Diverse offerings of cultural, adventure, environmental and social documentaries have already started being collected from around the globe. Primarily screened at the historic Orpheum Theater, each unique session promises to expose new points of view with many of the filmmakers present to discuss their filmmaking process.
