Breckenridge Film Festival - Breckenridge, Colorado

Breckenridge Film Festival

September 19–22, 2019

The Breck Film Fest celebrates its 39th year this September 19-22! From the festival that brought the world Shawshank Redemption, LA Confidential, and fun fact, Kung Fu Panda, it’s no wonder USA Today lists the BFF in the Top 20 American Film Festivals. This year attendees are invited to explore Breckenridge through the eyes of film. With four screening locations across town, numerous parties, kids programs, fall colors, local vendors and casual 14ers right outside your door, the Breck Film Fest is a great experience everyone can enjoy.

The Breck Film Fest is excited to bring the latest Billy Crystal film, “Standing Up and Falling Down,” to Breckenridge this fall. Also starring Ben Schwartz of Parks & Recreation, the film reportedly has award-worthy performances from Crystal and Schwartz. What’s unclear at this moment is whether Crystal or Schwartz will be in attendance, but festival insiders say the director and writer are confirmed guests at the Sept. 19-22 festival.

Dates: September 19-22, 2019

  • Four screening locations across town
