The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming to High Point on Sunday, March 25th and Durham on Monday, March 26th!

 

Two nights. Two unique programs.

Proceeds to benefit three local nonprofit organizations.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival, a program of 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, Canada, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road.

With stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 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 2017/2018 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
From approximately 400 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.

 

Join REI Co-op when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to central North Carolina:

 

The High Point showing will feature films such as The Last Honey Hunter. The Durham showing will feature Loved by All: Apa Sherpa and Into Twin Galaxies.

 

Proceeds from these two showings will benefit three local nonprofit organizations: Piedmont Fat Tire Society; the local chapter of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA); and Triangle Land Conservancy.
