Mountain Film Festival World Tour at Key City Jan. 7 and 8
The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour will be screening at Key City Theatre on January 7 and 8 at 7 p.m.
Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook is thrilled to host this in-person community event that continues a local tradition spanning nearly three decades. Theatre-goers can enjoy two standout film lineups featuring some of the year’s best mountain and adventure films.
The Larch Program plays on Friday, January 7. It includes films such as Bear-Like, in which two adventurers make close contact with grizzlies in Alaska, and Dream Mountain, which follows National Geographic’s People’s Choice Adventurer of the Year Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita as she faces Cholatse, a sheer 6,440m in the Everest region.
The Maple Program plays on Saturday, January 8. The lineup features films like Breaking Trail (lead image), in which Emily Ford sets out to become the first woman and person of colour to finish the 69-day and 1900-km journey along the Ice Age Trail. And Precious Leader Woman, which tells the story of elite snowboarder Spencer O’Brien as she goes from competing on the world stage to exploring the backcountry and her Indigenous heritage.
Tickets are $30 for one night or $50 for both nights and available at the Key City Theatre box office. More information regarding the event as well as the tantalizing film lineups are available at wildsight.ca/banff.
Seats are still available but be sure to grab them while you can as the theatre will be filled to 50% capacity, per provincial health guidelines. Theatre-goers are asked to bring valid ID and proof of vaccination, which must be shown upon entry.
For those who can’t attend (or can’t get enough of the action), the Banff World Tour is also available online. Enjoy two different virtual programs, Spruce and Pine, from the comfort of your home! Buy single program tickets or buy a bundle to enjoy both and save.
A percentage of all ticket sales (live and online) directly support Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook’s education, conservation, and regeneration initiatives throughout the year.
