Hot on the heels of the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour has hit the road, with stops planned in more than 250 communities and 25 countries across the globe.
This year's tour features a collection of the most inspiring and thought-provoking active, environmental, and adventure mountain films. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2005/2006 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is produced by Mountain Culture at The Banff Centre, and features award-winning films and audience favorites from approximately 300 films entered in the annual festival in Banff.
After three sold-out years at the Delta Grandview Resort, Algonquin Outfitters made the decision to relocate the film festival to the Algonquin Theatre. Gordon Baker, event coordinator for Algonquin Outfitters, said, “The new venue offers theatre-style reserved seating, on-line ticket purchasing, a huge screen, a fantastic sound system, easier access and more convenient parking. Anyone that has been to the theatre will know that there are no bad seats! All-in-all, the Algonquin Theatre will offer a higher quality viewing experience, which is what it's all about.”
While the event may have left Grandview, Algonquin Outfitters has maintained the partnership with the resort's Nature Trails program, and will continue the fund-raising aspect of the film presentation. Funds generated by ticket sales will be donated to the Muskoka Heritage Foundation to support wildlife research in Algonquin Park.
Join Algonquin Outfitters when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Huntsville, at the Algonquin Theatre on Thursday, January 19 7:30 PM.
Admission is $15 for adults and $12 for students. Tickets are available at the Algonquin Theatre box office at 37 Main St. E., on-line at www.algonquintheatre.ca or by calling the theatre box office at (705) 789-4975, or 1-888-696-4255, ext. 2352.
