Festival Dates = September 20-23, 2018

The Breck Film Fest delivers compelling film experiences year-round and through an annual Film Festival that enrich the lives of Summit County citizens, visitors and filmmakers. Taking place in the authentic mountain environment of historic Breckenridge, located at 9,600 feet above sea level, the festival celebrates vibrant fall color intertwined with vibrant personalities and storytelling in an easy-to-access location just 80 miles west of Denver via Interstate 70. The festival screens up to 100 films in four days, welcomes more than 30 filmmakers from around the world to engage with audiences, has recently been ranked as a USA Today Top 20 Film Festival and continually ranks as a Top 100 Film Festival on the FilmFreeway submissions platform.

Highlights of the festival include featured programming at the Riverwalk Center, typically involving top-notch industry guests from outfits such as Pixar, Disney, ReFramed Pictures (Susan Sarandon-operated production company), Laika Entertainment, and more. The festival strives to connect industry professionals with audiences and local filmmakers to advance the art of storytelling and all that goes along with it: composing, music and sound; cinematography; the business of filmmaking/production; directing; and so much more.

Janice Miller has been the Breckenridge Film Festival’s Executive Director for five years. She graduated from University of Virginia with a BA in Media Studies and worked in newspapers as a reporter and editor before becoming the festival’s executive director. Her passion lies in the power of storytelling through a variety of media, and believes in film the most influential medium in today’s society. It brings together a variety of art forms – drawing, music, verbal storytelling, narration, and theater to name a few – in a captivating way. She loves meeting the people involved in the making of film. Each one, and each of their stories, provides a unique perspective into the world we live in.


Last year's film festival welcomed more than 30 filmmakers who represented roughly half of the films we screened during the weekend.

Raising Babies 
"Our mission is to make a better world by creating healthy, happy and productive citizens.  It all starts with babies."

"We are a non-profit organization dedicated to making the world a better place by educating new parents in methods and practices that create happier and healthier children. We pass out Raising Babies information packets to hospitals, doctors, and day care facilities so parents have information that can empower them to do the best they can to have a happy, healthy and functioning baby. It is our belief that new parents are much more open to being informed when they are starting out, rather than later when they are having difficulties with their 2 or 3 year old. Hopefully we can minimize the difficulties. We know that all parents are faced with challenges and difficulties, but the more we can help prevent, the better."

The Safe Passages Plan provides a vision for creating safe passages for wildlife and reducing wildlife-vehicle collisions in Summit County.

Summit County Safe Passages works to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions and improve landscape connectivity for wildlife along Summit County’s roadways. Summit County is unrivaled in its beauty and outstanding outdoor recreation opportunities, which has caused both the local populations and visitations to skyrocket. With more and more people enjoying the same landscape that wildlife call home, we’ve seen an increase in dangerous, busy roads dividing their habitats as well as wildlife-vehicle collisions. Summit County Safe Passages is working to make specific recommendations for wildlife crossing structures and other conservation opportunities by researching the balance of wildlife needs with the ever-growing human population. Reconnecting the landscape with wildlife crossing structures will not only bring healthier wildlife populations, which provide many ecological, social and economic benefits to Summit County, but will make our roads much safer for motorists as well.


Additionally, this plan allows for a "connected landscape", which allows plants and animals to move freely, with fewer barriers, reducing the threat to biodiversity.
