For the 24th year, the spirit of outdoor adventure and mountain culture is coming to Williams Lake.
This year’s Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour features the best mountain films, showcasing filimmaking talent from the world over to an audience that spans the globe.
The World Tour in Williams Lake will feature films such as:
Denali — There is no easy way to say goodbye to a friend, especially when they’ve supported you through your darkest times. A collaboration between Ben Knight, Skip Armstrong and Ben Moon.
Important Places — Using a mix of old 16mm footage and new visuals, a son rediscovers the necessity of returning to and protecting “the important places” in our lives.
“As we do every year, we bring an exciting program to the screen, allowing everyone to experience these inspiring stories that drive us to keep exploring our world outside,” said Denise Skarra, the city’s recreation co-ordinator.
The 2015/16 World Tour features a collection of exhilarating and provocative films that explore life in the mountains.
They highlight remote cultures, intense expeditions into exotic landscapes and bring adrenaline-packed action sports into sharp focus.
“The best part of hosting the World Tour is being able to witness a community of film buffs and lovers of the outdoors come together to share stories, be inspired to set out on new adventures and learn about the mountains they love,” Skarra said. “You will always connect with old friends and make new ones at the World Tour screenings. That’s the best part.”
The most prestigious mountain festival in the world, The Banff Centre’s Banff Mountain Film Festival celebrates its 40th year in 2015 by continuing to bring the best action, environmental and adventure films to audiences in Banff and in 40 countries across the globe.
The Williams Lake World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to the Gibraltar Room on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.
