Trail Running Film Festival
April 22, 2023
The Trail Running Film Festival is back on tour and returning to Rochester for a great night of films, inspiration, and community. Come explore our collective and individual potential, and let's pursue our wildest dreams. We’re excited to bring you stories from around the world by filmmakers sharing their work of adventure, inclusivity, wilderness, art, and diversity across the trail and ultra community.
We will be hosting you at the The Little Theatre's historic Theatre 1, which re-opened in 2020 with a fully renovated marquee, new auditorium seats, fully updated stage and sound system, and a rejuvenated lobby.
5:00PM - Doors open.
Our brewery partner, Birdhouse Brewing, will be set up in the outer lobby offering tastings of their Earl-y Bird Tea Wheat Ale and Strawberry Blonde Ale. The Little concessions will also be open during the event and will have Birdhouse's Hazy Bird IPA on tap.
Make your way into the inner lobby to meet with local trail running organizations, including:
Medved: Medved Madness (5 mile, 13 mile), The Grand Trail Races (5 mile, 10 mile), and the return of Wednesday Night Trail Runs
Rochester Running Company: 0SPF Trail Half Marathon, Swain Mountain Race, Unlimited Breadsticks Trail Half Marathon, and the new Run Our Trails Series
