THE BANFF MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL WORLD TOUR 2013
Hot on the heels of the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour has hit the road, with stops planned in more than 390 communities and 35 countries across the globe.
More than 300 of the world’s best mountain sport, culture, environment, adventure, and exploration films are shown during the week-long event. A selection of award winners and audience favourites then tours the globe, visiting 390 communities and 35 countries as part of the festival’s official world tour.
This year, the Australian line-up features two-and-a-half hours of captivating footage shot in some of the most wild and remote corners of the world. Sure to enthral, it showcases 11 films packed full of mesmerising cinematography, thought-provoking storylines and adrenalin-inducing action sequences.
Audiences will experience incredible highs and agonising lows through the lenses of some of the most accomplished climbers, paddlers, skaters, snowboarders, canyoners, mountain-bike riders, explorers and adventure filmmakers alive today.
On their quests for higher vantage points, faster speeds and even more out-of-the-way places, they’ll lead you on a journey of discovery from Antarctica’s icy rim to the South Pole and back, to the top of Yosemite’s vertical walls, through deep powder in Japan, down fast-flowing white-water drops in New Zealand, high into the mountain ranges of Colorado, deep into the Grand Canyon, through an abandoned industrial site in Scotland, over an ice edge in Norway and on a high-speed road trip through Spain.
Presented by World Expeditions, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour will screen at the National Film and Sound Archives 5, 6, 7 & 8 May, 2013. Be warned to book early as screenings often sell out in advance.
