Celebrate winter with PEEC

-A A +A

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center and the Reel Deal Theater will team up once again for the annual showing of the Backcountry Film Festival, from 7-8:30 p.m. Jan. 10.
Celebrate winter with these backcountry films of the year. As a special addition this year, the Pajarito Brewpub and Grill will sell wine and beer during the showing.
Winter is here and once again, the Winter Wildlands Alliance’s Backcountry Film Festival is sure to live up to its reputation.
Wax those skis, tune those boards and gather your friends. The film festival celebrates winter, telling stories of the season’s action and play through seven films.
They come from filmmakers who search backcountry corners across the globe to submit their best work, and from grassroots filmmakers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursions and submit their best film short.
A panel of judges picks the best films, which are assembled into this 90-minute program.
This year’s Backcountry Film Festival event will serve up a raffle, ice-cold brews and mountains of winter inspiration.
Raffle prizes will include outdoor gear, coupons and gift certificates from places like Mountain Khakis, Sierra Trading Post, REI, Pajarito Mountain and more.  
Tickets will be sold by Reel Deal in advance and at the door; $10 adults, $5 children.
