As part of Kicking Horse Culture Live Kicks series the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour will be stopping in Golden on Dec. 7.

The evening of film will be hosted at the Golden Civic Centre and will bring many of the best films from the festival to town.

The world tour spans the globe, reaching more than 280,000 audience members through more than 700 screenings in approximately 390 locations in 35 countries all around the globe.

The organizations in each tour location do their part in helping to choose a program that reflects the interests of their community.

Director of Kicking Horse Culture, Bill Usher, is excited to once again have Golden be a part of the world tour.

“As always I get to see what all those people who are much fitter and much more adventurous than I am are doing with their lives. I get to vicariously travel around the world and fly off the top of mountaintops. I think it is a hoot,” Usher said.

One of the reasons Usher said this event is so much fun is because of the great variety of films that can be a part of the evening.

“There is really good film making. There is some great content and stories which comes with some of the films. The selection is beyond just someone flying down a mountain and you get to see what people are experiencing.”

Tickets for the event are on sale at the Art Gallery of Golden and for information on this or any other Kicking Horse Culture event check out the group’s website at www.kickinghorseculture.ca. You can also check out the Kicking Horse Culture Facebook page.
