Join with other environmental activists in rethinking how we inhabit our planet at the 11th annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival (CEFF). This year’s films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and compelling storytelling. CEFF is now the largest film festival of its kind between the coasts and is often the only place you will be able to see these inspiring films. CEFF celebrates the power of film to inspire, educate, and motivate audiences.
The festival presents thought-provoking films and dialogue that raises awareness of a wide-ranging collection of interconnected ecological, social and economic themes. Nearly 140 films were screened from around the state and the globe. Fourty-eight will be shown, with awards given in the following categories: Best Feature Film, Best Short Film, Spirit of Activism, Best Youth Film and Best of the Fest. Each year, CEFF draws top filmmakers, students, leading activists, social innovators and well-known adventurers to the American Mountaineering Center in historic downtown Golden, Colorado. CEFF is an non-profit 501c(3) organization formed in 2005 to provide inspiring environmental films to Colorado residents!

Recognized as the Go to Lawyer by the Outdoor Recreation Industry
The outdoor industry’s favorite lawyer, Moss has been known to don a toga at a show party and he learns from what he observes on the show floor. “Attending a trade show year after year allows you to watch the industry evolve, grow, change and sometimes shrink,” he says. “It shows you new sports, new activities, and new ways to get sued. Outdoor Retailer is both a barometer and an education in the outdoor recreation industry.”
