PREVIEW: Banff film festival comes to Brighton! 25/01/17

The Verse’s Lou Clement is here to tell you all about an exciting and innovative film festival landing in Brighton this month for the first date of their UK tour.

Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, Wed 25 Jan 2017, 7.30pm (doors 6.45pm)

Banff Mountain Film Festival delivers a curated selection of top-notch short films and the festival arrives in Brighton on the first date of their UK tour on January 25.

I expect it to be a very special event again this year. Every time I have been, I’ve always felt exhilarated and entertained by the short films presented. This is because the programme of documentaries always reveals jaw-dropping achievements of adventures who are often every day people. It also contains the emotional and personal stories from those who live outside of the 9-5 and from all corners of the globe.

Banff Mountain film festival began forty-six years ago; it originated in the resort town in Alberta, Canada and within Banff National Park. It now tours all over the world and gives us a chance to see adventure athletes on the big screen and hear uncommon stories of those living in mountainous environments.  

A truly international film tour, Banff will be stopping off at 41 countries, including a scientific station at the South Pole. The festival in Brighton is split over two days, one day in January and one in April, each with a different program of films, first up is the Red Programme. 

The events bring together all types of people interested in outdoor activities and experiences and in the interval there are chances to win prizes, the event is enthusiastically compèred and this year’s line-up looks fantastic again.

Join the festival and have a chance to follow the expeditions of explorers, adventurers and athletes from around the world and from some of the most extreme environments on the planet. It is sure to be thought-provoking, inspiring and it may even make you think about taking that trip you’ve been putting off.
