The Alpinist Film Festival

The Alpinist Film Festival (formerly The Barry Corbet Film Festival) honors Barry Corbet’s athletic and artistic spirit with films that celebrate the adventure lifestyle across disciplines and generations. The AFF's mission is to advance the art of cinematographic storytelling as it underscores the unity among the adventure lifestyle communities. A portion of every year's proceeds (more than $30,000 to date) are donated to charities that help preserve the places of our inspiration. Because one of these places is our planet, the AFF is a carbon-neutral event.

The Master Festival

Each January at the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, three nights of film—Snow (skiing), Surf (surfing) and Stone (climbing)—are followed by the People's Choice Ceremonies, which presents the People's Choice award-winning films from the preceeding three evenings. Cocktail hours each night before the films foster a party-like atmosphere for the entire audience. A DJ provides the vibe; silent auctions benefit the year’s designated non- profit; and star presenters complete the singular experience of what has quickly become the best party in the outdoor world.

The 2009 Alpinist Film Festival will take place in Jackson Hole from January 15-18.

Jackson Hole and Alpinist Film Festival Ski/Film Package

We at Alpinist are avid skiers (the dry rock is locked away nine months of the year), and we've been pleased to work locally with the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR), that supports both the Alpinist Film Festival and the AFF Tour.

This year, in addition to a new tram (which eliminates the need to take four separate chairlifts to the near-summit of Rendezvous Peak), the JHMR is offering a special Alpinist Film Festival package: three nights lodging in a one bedroom/one bathroom slopeside condo in Teton Village, Film Festival Headquarters, and two-day lift tickets at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. You also get an Alpinist Film Festival Pass for one evening of incredible new-release movie-viewing pleasure, a one-year Alpinist subscription and a free Alpinist Film Festival t-shirt. Package pricing starts at $518/person based on double occupancy. Valid 1/14/09 - 1/19/09, must book by 12/15/08. Please contact Jackson Hole Resort Lodging at 1-800-443-8613 or visit their website.
