2023 Trail Running Film Festival

Join us on Wednesday, April 19th for the 2023 Trail Running Film Festival, a two-hour celebration on film of this wild, wonderful trail running community! This year's Boston area screening is hosted by the Northeast Trail Crew.

The mission of the Trail Running Film Fest is to celebrate running as a universal practice, to explore our collective and individual potential, and to pursue our wildest dreams. The film festival creators accomplish this by documenting the culture of trail running, supporting filmmakers and creatives, and hosting events that bring our community together. We are committed to promoting inclusivity, adventure, wilderness, art, and diversity across the trail and ultra community.


Event Details

The Trail Running Film Festival will be held at the historic Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA. Doors open at 6:15PM, and we'll begin the program at 7:00PM. Northeast Trail Crew invites you to come early, grab a drink and socialize with other members of the running community.

This year's program features nine short films from around the world with a total runtime of 2 hours. There will be an intermission with a prize raffle. Stay tuned for updates as we add sponsors to the event.
