Backcountry Film Festival - Bellevue

As always this is a Non-Hosted event!  However, if you put your name in the comment

of this event, I will try to save you a seat! 

If you have any questions, please ask!!!!

Tickets can be purchased at: Brown Paper Tickets.  This is the same event that is also being hosted in Seattle on January 10th, 2014.

Now in its 9th year the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival celebrates the human powered winter experience through film. The festival aims to entertain while

helping to raise funds and awareness for Winter Wildlands and our like-minded

partners. The Backcountry Film Festival premieres in Boise ID and then travels

to more than 100 locations worldwide.  Along the way, the Backcountry Film

Festival will be viewed by more than 20,000 outdoor enthusiasts and raise more

than $110,000 each year for local organizations working on advocacy, snow

safety, outdoor education and SnowSchool programs.

    As it turns out I will not be able to attend this event. This will be the first time I have not been able to attend, but I will be at the one in Seattle in January, which is the same film festival. As no more than one person asked for a seat to be saved, no seats will be saved. If there is an assistant organizer that would like to host this “non-hosted” event and would like some seats saved, let me know and I can let the event producer know and they would be happy to save some seats.

    I will just be getting back on Jan. 10 from Dallas, TX from a project job training and since the govt has not booked my flight times yet, I do not know yet what time I arrive at SeaTac that day/eve? But if possible, I would like to see this: I do not see the start and stop times listed
