The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour winds its way to Williams Lake Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room.

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, Alberta, 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.

Traveling 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 favorites 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.

The City of Williams Lake will feature films such as:

Crossing the Ice ­­­— Australian adventurers, James Castrission and Justin Jones, dare to tackle the perilous journey across Antarctica to the South Pole and back again, completely unassisted — just two men dragging their food and shelter across 1,140 kilometres of barren ice.

Thin Ice — Slide away with simple pleasures: skating and bathing.

5 Races — a look into the world of mountain running, depicting the joy, pain, transformation, and inspiration found in races around the world.

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