While living in Canada over the past 6 years or so, it wasn’t uncommon to catch glimpses of completely fearless individuals attempting to do extraordinary things in the beautiful river-raging mountainous regions that abound the country.
While I can no longer drive a couple of hours in any direction to find these crazy mountain adventurers, it appears that I will, once again, be able to indulge in a cinematic feast featuring all things extreme sports, thanks to a selection of creative film-making geniuses brought together by “The Banff Centre”.
In a couple of short weeks time, the 2011 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour “Radical Reels” will be rolling into Brisbane on the 24th & 25th of November at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts in the Valley, bringing with them a selection of the best sport films from the 35th annual Banff Mountain Film Festival.
This years reels include breathtaking action from the worlds of bouldering, snow skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, base jumping, downhill longboarding and white water kayaking! I was blown away by how good the last festival was that I saw in North Vancouver last December, so I’m REALLY excited about getting the chance to see it again here in Australia.
Just check out the trailer below and tell me it doesn’t get you interested?!?!
Tickets are just $30 and are available, along with all the details on other stops throughout Australia on the official website at:
For my friends in Vancouver, the World Tour is headed your way on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of December. Check out the “Alpine Club of Canada” website for ticketing information.
