Boulder Adventure Film Festival

The Adventure Film Festival at the historic Boulder Theater in downtown Boulder, Colorado. Photo by Caroline Treadway.

In 2004, Jonny Copp got an idea. Snow and tent-bound for days in the high Himalayas, I’m sure he had lots of ideas. But this one stuck, an international film festival to celebrate alpinism, adventure, and the environment, all things Jonny loved. Read the rest of the story.As the official AFF paparazzi, I didn’t get to see all the movies, but of the ones I did see, my favorites were: Felt Soul’s “Eastern Rises”, Jeremy Collins’ “Border Country” and Renan Ozturk’s “As It Happens”. Go see em!

Here are my photos from the event-Enjoy!
