There are a lot of talented filmmakers in this close-knit and extended trail community, and they wanted to create a way to showcase everything they love so much about trail running, while simultaneously highlighting local, regional, national, and international filmmakers. Thus, in early 2013,The Trail Running Film Fest was born!
The very first festival was in March of 2013 alongside Rainshadow Running’s Gorge Waterfalls trail races, and it sold out in a matter of hours. That weekend-long festival was so popular they were asked by numerous trail runners from all over North America to take the festival on tour to their communities. In March of 2014, they did just that! After a very successful 12-city tour debut in the Northwest, they took our beloved Film Fest on the road for an amazing 31-city nationwide tour in the fall of 2014.
Since then the festival has just grown more and more with bigger crowds and shows in many new cities.
Almost daily there are requests to bring our carefully curated selection of the best trail-running movies out there to cities all over the world, so stay tuned – they might be coming to your city very soon.
