SPIRITUAL
In 2007, BFF solicited a few spiritual films and it has grown in popularity since then. The Spiritual category includes submissions that are spiritually- oriented, uplifting and socially redeeming.
The Spiritual Track of the Breckenridge Film Festival exists to highlight films of particular spiritual content and interest and give the audience a chance to interact about the film and to discuss it with the filmmakers. Films are chosen with an emphasis on practical spirituality, as opposed to those of more theoretical themes, showcasing those that show people working out their faith in this life.
ADVENTURE
The Adventure Reel began in 2013, inspired by the festival's creative – and active – Colorado audience. Films may be action-focused or philosophical, but accepted films will have a well-conceived and implemented story line, have an inspirational or storytelling element and/or should educate audiences on outdoor activities or outdoor themes.

MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the Breckenridge Festival of Film is to challenge, stimulate and enrich the intellectual and cultural life of our community through the celebration of film. Simply: To inspire, entertain and educate.




ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Since 1981, the Breckenridge Festival of Film has presented events year-round celebrating the art of filmmaking. The festival itself is a four-day program providing unique and varied film fare seldom available to residents of, and visitors to, Summit County, Colorado.

During the festival weekend, a multitude of films in different genres are presented alongside educational workshops and events to present a relaxed atmosphere in which guests are readily accessible to filmmakers. Writers, directors, producers and performing artists attend to discuss their work with audiences in informal sessions following film screenings, at receptions and film forums.

The Breckenridge Festival of Film provides an opportunity for filmmakers to express themselves and interact with audiences in a laid back casual atmosphere and to mingle with and make contacts with industry people. We welcome and appreciate the creative talents of all the filmmakers we've met over the years and look forward to meeting more. Breckfilmfest is "the filmmaker's film festival"

WE OFFER LODGING TO ATTENDING FILMMAKERS ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE LIMITED BASIS ONCE FILMS ARE SELECTED AND LODGING IS ANNOUNCED.
