It may not be real fresh mountain air but it’s about as close as you can get to the real thing.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival is coming to Williams Lake for the 27th year, bringing with it the year’s best outdoor and adventure films.
Everything from skiers taking on the snowy streets of Nelson to women dominating their environments by climbing, hiking, biking, and riding higher and harder and faster than ever before.
The event promises to be an inspiration to adrenaline junkies, film buffs, and outdoor enthusiasts alike and is part of the festival’s World Tour.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival takes place over nine action-packed days every year in Banff, Alta.
It brings together adventurers, photographers, filmmakers and authors to share their ground-breaking outdoor accomplishments.
With the World Tour, people in 450 communities in 40 countries get a taste of this world-renowned festival with screenings in their hometowns.
Denise Skarra, the recreation co-ordinator for the City of Williams Lake said that the festival “provides great entertainment in Williams Lake and at a reasonable cost.”
She adds that eight to 10 films will be shown at the event that will “ignite your passion for adventure, action, and travel.”
On Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. residents of Williams Lake will have the chance to be inspired by the best outdoor, culture and environmental films of the year.
The screenings will take place in the Gibraltar room and tickets can be purchased at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex or at Red Shreds Bike & Board Shed for $19 for adults and $14 for students and seniors.
