Youth Film Programs


The Crested Butte Film Festival’s Youth Program offers a great lineup of educational, artistic and inspirational films for young kids and teens. We will screen a variety of international films that entertain, spark curiosity and bring awareness to worlds that may otherwise go unexplored. The films in the Youth Program will not only entertain but ignite children’s imaginations and creativity.

After the program we will go BEYOND THE SCREEN:  the Trailhead Children’s Museum will offer hands on activities that deepen the connection with the films they have just seen. We also collaborate with Crested Butte Community School. Our Student Screening Committee is comprised of middle and high school students who are interested in film, filmmaking, art and writing. Committee members screened more than 75 films this year and made film selections through an online rating process including written critiques. The Crested Butte Film Festival also sponsors a film that will be screened for the entire school community during the school year. As our Festival matures we hope the kids will assume ownership of the Festival Youth Program.

Please join us on Saturday, October 1st at 4pm at the Center for the Arts.

Students under 18 will be admitted FREE.
