THE BANFF Mountain Film Festival returns to Llandudno’s Venue Cymru on February 6 this year for it’s 2015 UK and Ireland tour.
Banff audiences will be taken on a journey around the world, as they get to know the remarkable characters behind the hair raising on-screen action sports, experiencing an exhilarating adventure through the big screen as they paraglide through the Alps, mountain bike on the Isle of Skye, surf in the Arctic Circle, ski in Patagonia, kayak in Canada’s British Columbia and much much more.
The two and a half hour programme has been selected from over 370 films which were entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival, held in the Canadian Rockies in November 2014.
The Tour is much more than a series of incredible films. It brings together people with a wide range of outdoor passions who return every year to enjoy the fantastic community feeling of a Banff screening and leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures.
Some of the 2015 highlights include The Ridge, a short film following renowned trails rider Danny MacAskill as he returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland for a new challenge: riding a mountain bike on the notorious deathdefying Cuillin Ridgeline.
Drawn is a film of four years, four cardinal points, and four epic adventures. Acclaimed climber and artist Jeremy Collins embarks on four journeys, from the Venezuelan Amazon, to the China-Mongolian Border, to the northern reaches of Canada, and to Yosemite Valley in California. This powerful adventure, with the death of a friend, the struggle of a tribe and the celebration of life; changes everything.
