Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour
The Banff Centre, based out of Banff, Alberta, Canada, hosts an annual film and book festival for outdoor enthusiasts, and the in the following months, a selection of films from this festival goes on to tour throughout the US and Canada. This week, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour made its annual stop in Salt Lake City, this year boasting 3 (up from the usual 2) nights of incredible films! I had the privilege of making it to one of the evenings, and thought I'd highlight where the tour heads in the next few weeks and some of the interesting films I saw. The Films The SLC showing of Banff films included some interesting environmental issues, some sick climbing, and of course, dropping some sweet pow lines! If showing in your town, be sure to check out Red Gold, a film regarding the controversial Pebble Mine in Alaska and Under the Influence, a great ski movie out by the TGR guys. Also, for you biking addicts out there, Crux shows some of the craziest things I've ever seen done on a bike! Upcoming Cities Denver, CO- Feb 26th and 27th Colorado Springs, CO- Feb 28th Moab, UT- March 9th Las Vegas, NV- March 12th Anchorage, AK- March 21st and 22nd. Tuscon, AZ- March 27th The Tour also appears to be making several stops in CA during mid-march! Be sure to check out what's coming close to you on Banff's Tour Website.
