Banff Mountain Film Festival
We caught Banff when it stopped in Bangor a few nights ago. Every year it sells out. If it comes to your town (and it should - it tours all over the world), get out of the house and GO! Here's the promotional trailer, courtesy of YouTube of course, with scenes from some of the short films. Really a must-see for anyone interested in outdoor sports, extreme sports, mountain cultures, environmental issues... Many of the films are only a few minutes long, most are twenty minutes or a half hour, all are made by people out there doing their thing, whatever that is, with all their hearts. Always inspirational. And very cool.
