Since 2001, Caltech has been a proud host of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Stopping at over 500 locations in 30 countries around the globe, the Tour celebrates the best films shown at that year's Festival in Banff, Alberta, Canada, one of the premier exhibitions of films about mountain and outdoor culture in the world.
Topics of the films include mountain sports (skiing, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, BASE, and others) and exotic mountain communities living in remote corners of the Earth. Dramatic scenery, quirky comedy, artistic cinematography, and epic adventures are classic trademarks of the best Banff films.
The format of this year's event will be the same as in years past: about two hours of total footage divided into several films covering a wide variety of the themes mentioned above.
Check back for the selections for this year's presentation.
Be sure come early to meet with local sponsors like Stronghold Climbing Gym, and chat with Sierra Madre Search and Rescue before the show starts!
