WWA is a local non-profit with a mission to protect Wyoming public wildlands through advocacy, education and stewardship. WWA began in 1979 as a group of local wilderness advocates who helped pass the 1984 Wyoming Wilderness Act. As of 2021, WWA has 3,000 members and supporters whose voices give them the inspiration to continue their work for a wild Wyoming. The Backcountry Film Festival is one of their favorite events to host and they are excited to bring it back to Sheridan once again.
Produced each year as a celebratory, backcountry community event by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, the 17th annual Backcountry Film Festival film line-up is full of snowy, cinematic adventure sure to inspire both the local backcountry and general communities. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving winter wildlands and a quality human-powered snow sports experience on public lands.
By partnering with groups like Wyoming Wilderness Association at a local level, the Winter Wildlands Alliance raises funds for these groups and communities through the annual Backcountry Film Festival national tour. All funds raised directly benefit local projects and programs that perpetuate access and stewardship of public lands.
Whether it’s adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, or ski culture- you’ll find it all in this award-winning lineup.
