Banff Film Festival goes Dec. 6

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is the largest and one of the most prestigious mountain festivals in the world.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival, a program of The Banff Centre, is the largest, and one of the most prestigious mountain festivals in the world.

Hot on the heels of the festival held every fall in Banff, Alta., the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road.

With stops planned in about 390 communities and 35 countries across the globe, this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Travelling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2011/2012 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

From approximately 300 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favourites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.

Join the City of Williams Lake when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Williams Lake, at the Gibraltar Room, Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

This Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour screening will feature films such as:

Ski Bum Never Die — directed by Eric Crosland and produced by Mike Douglas.

What does it take to be a ski bum? An unending dedication to powder skiing? The ability to do anything in your ski boots? A lifelong quest for deep snow?

Find out with this unusual and inspiring band of skiers in the Kootenay region of British Columbia.

On the trail of Genghis Khan: The Last Frontier — directed by Tim Cope and produced by Richard Dennison.

On an epic journey of truly historic proportions, Australian Tim Cope, his band of horses, and his dog Tigon travel overland 10,000 kilometres from Mongolia to Hungary, following the footsteps of legendary warrior and nomad Genghis Khan.

Cope visits distant parts of the world rarely seen, places on the cusp of modernity yet proud of nomadic traditions.

The Last Frontier captures the culmination of his stunning three-year journey, the crossing of the Carpathian Mountains.

Cold — directed and produced by Anson Fogel.

Experience Gasherbrum II in the middle of a deep, dark winter as seen from the raw, honest perspective of alpinist Cory Richard’s camera.

This film deftly captures the interwoven roles of pain, fear, and doubt — and reveals a harrowing descent that amplifies their isolation and exposure.

These three films have been confirmed while others will also be shown.

For tickets and information contact the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 250-398-7665 or Red Shreds Bike and Board Sheds at 250-398-7873.
