Leaf Thank You.jpg

THANK YOU FOR AN INCREDIBLE CBFF 2014!

The Crested Butte Film Festival thanks everyone for their part in a great four-day film festival last weekend. It started on Opening Night with part-time resident Jesse Zwick returning home with his debut-feature, About Alex, and finished up three nights later with great weather, great crowds, amazing films, and many sold-out shows. We are incredibly thankful to our dedicated year-round staff and to our weekend volunteers for their kindness, their time, and their good humor in producing an event that was enjoyed by all and inspirational to many.

The festival had more than thirty visiting filmmakers attend (some from as far away as Alaska and Buenos Aires) and as you might imagine, they all fell in love with Crested Butte - many proclaiming they will return next year with or without a film. They truly love our town, the beauty that surrounds it, and the people and the pace within it. We also thank our sponsors: our lodging sponsors who generously gave accommodations to filmmakers, our restaurants who offered free meals, and our individual sponsors and donors who helped with the licensing of films and the upkeep of the festival itself.

Our attendance was again up this year, for the fourth year running. Although our final numbers are not in at the moment, it seemed that nearly every show at the Majestic Theatre and at the Crested Butte Mountain Theatre was a packed house, as were many shows at the Center for the Arts, including the brilliant, and very special, father-son question-and-answer session with director Ed Zwick and his son, director Jesse Zwick, following the second screening of About Alex.

Our staff thanks everyone who came to the festival and we can't wait to see you next year! September 24 - 27th.
