The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming back to Williams Lake next week.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming back to Williams Lake next week.

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 400 communities and 40 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 2013/14 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

From approximately 350 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 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3, in the Gibraltar Room at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

The city will feature films such as:

North of the Sun — Filmmakers — Inge Wegge and Anne Bergseng

Tucked between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the rocky slopes of a remote, arctic island, two young Norwegian adventurers discover their own private playground. They build themselves a cabin out of flotsam while clearing the beach of debris, then spend the long winter skiing and surfing in the haunting low light.

Keeper of the Mountains — Filmmakers — Allison Otto, Scott McElroy

Elizabeth Hawley bucked the conventions of her time by settling alone in Kathmadu in 1960, where she began chronicling Himalayan expeditions for The Himalayan Database. Even as she turns 90, she continues to update these records with rigorous accuracy and dedication.

For tickets and information contact the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 250-398-7665 or Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed at 250-398-7873.

Advance tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. At the door tickets are $19 for adults and $14 for seniors and students.
