Banff Film Fest mixes adrenaline and happiness at Golden showing

One of Kicking Horse Culture’s most popular annual events is the Banff Mountain Film Festival.

The world tour is a compendium of highlights from the year’s best short films, a showcase for the most thrilling aspects of mountain culture and the world’s most pristine, beautifully remote environments.

The Banff Festival itself, which screens the very best of several hundred films that have been carefully juried, is the largest and one of the most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. And out of that comes the “best of the fest” film tour, which is presented at more than 400 communities in 35 countries around the world.

This is an eye-popping selection of highlights.

Expect extreme action sequences, inspiring environmental commentary, and narratives of amazing adventures in exotic cultures and far-off lands.

Running just more than two hours, it is a righteous blast of mountain madness that will fill your Friday night with a high-octane mix of adrenaline and happiness.

More than 30 short films will show at the Banff Mountain Film Festival world tour, ranging anywhere from two to 44 minutes in length.

Grab your favourite beverage from the cafe, sink back into your seat, and get ready for some serious exhilaration. This one always sells out, so get your tickets early.

Tickets are available at the Art Gallery of Golden, and often sell out before the event. The Banff Mountain Film Festival world tour shows at the Mount 7 Rec Plex on December 7 at 7:30 p.m.
