Outside Magazine: The Only Things You Should Read, Watch, and Do This Week

You love Crested Butte for the mountain biking and skiing, and now you have one more excuse to plan a quick escape to the mountain town. Next weekend marks the sixth annual Crested Butte Film Festival, which features about 100 documentaries and narrative films, both feature-length and short, right as the aspens begin to change color.

Local Takes Initiative to Ban Plastic Bags in Crested Butte

Benjamin Swift is a Crested Butte local emerging filmmaker whose film, Crested Butte Nordic Hits The Streets, was a success at the 2015 Crested Butte Film Festival Mountain Kids Film program. In between Nordic ski racing and finishing high school, Swift is a passionate environmental steward turned activist with his relatively new project, Plastic Bag Free CB, a movement to eliminate non-reusable plastic bags within Crested Butte and throughout Gunnison County.

There you are minding your own business - walking down First Avenue in New York City when you happen upon a sight straight out of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs... six look-alike boys, all dressed in Ray-Bans, black suits with white shirts, and skinny black ties.

Crested Butte Film Festival is excited to present THE WOLFPACK as our first film of 2016, Thursday night, January 21, 7pm, at the Crested Butte Center for the Arts.
