Your Gift Has a Major Impact

Now, more than ever, the importance of gathering as a community and sharing stories is paramount. Your gift brings people together to experience and be changed by film, fostering dialogue, breaking down barriers, and building bridges that allow us to better understand each other in an ever-expanding and sometimes divided world.  

Your support brings life-changing films to the big screen, and fuels our mission to evoke connection, awareness, and action through the transformative power of storytelling. 


NOAH was a World Premiere at the 2017 Crested Butte Film Festival. 

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Noah Patton was able to attend the festival and share his story in person. Noah's visit to Crested Butte was his first trip away from Flint, Michigan and his life was forever changed. 

Director Dana Romanoff was recognized with a Special Jury Award for an individual who significantly champions and fosters the spirit of social justice in the field of cinema and whose body of work embodies the spirit of activism in the arts.

Your support ensures that important stories like Noah's receive the recognition they deserve.


Your donation is critical to the success of Crested Butte Film Festival and the communities we serve. 

Year after year, your support helps grow the festival, expanding the reach of our programs and bringing even more people together to experience and be changed by film.  

Thanks to our incredible community of donors, sponsors, filmmakers, volunteers, and patrons, 2017 was our best festival yet!

Connection. Awareness. Dialogue. Action. 

The world needs stories, and that's why we're here. If just one film, one story, one experience has the power to change someone’s life, the ripple effect is set in motion. And as waves of change ripple outwards, we see how one small action can make a big difference. 


Will you become a vital part of the ripple effect in action?


Thank you for your time and consideration. We are sincerely grateful for your generous contribution and your commitment to enriching lives through film. Your donation has a major impact and is essential to our success in 2018 and beyond. 

All donations go through our fiscal sponsor, the Center for the Arts in Crested Butte. Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law and you will receive your end-year tax notice from The Center.
