The Teton Climbers’ Coalition’s inaugural AlpinFilm, presented by Teton Mountaineering, debuted January 13-14, 2023 at the 300-seat Jackson Hole Playhouse in downtown Jackson, Wyoming.
AlpinFilm celebrates Jackson Hole’s identity as the epicenter of American mountaineering. From homegrown adventures to international expeditions, the Tetons have inspired climbers and ski mountaineers to push physical, mental and spiritual boundaries for more than a century. That legacy informs the selection of our films and the composition of our audience, which includes the local mountain community and winter visitors alike.
More than a showcase of adventurous acts, AlpinFilm explores the reasons we embark on adventures in the first place. AlpinFilm’s emphasis on cinematographic storytelling and on films that span the globe is a tribute to the mountains and the international community they inspire.
AlpinFilm is modeled on The Alpinist Film Festival, which ran from 2004-2008, attracting more than 2,000 audience members at its peak. All proceeds from the event underwrite the work of The Teton Climbers’ Coalition, a 501c3 non-profit organization that stewards, advocates and engages on behalf of the Teton climbing community.
