View Full Version : Banff Mtn Film Festival Tour

2009-03-24, 00:46
I worked the Banff Mtn Film Festival Tour (http://www.banffmountainfestivals.ca/tour/) stop here in atlanta tonight, didn't know what the event was untill we started loading it in, but it was pretty cool....
and i'm one who can't sit through slideshows, but this was several films/documentaries of various lengths on various 'outdoor' sports.... none that I saw were specifically about hiking, but there was a good bit of hiking in it...

The one here in Atl was sponsored by REI, so there was also a gear giveaway... looks like not all stops are sponsored by rei

If you have a chance, i think its worth it to check out, every stop has a different set of videos.

I saw in the local paper it was coming to Bloomington - the same weekend as the April Bash in Franklin. They are advertising it pretty well up here.

Looks like a great film festival. I'd love to see it.

Watch the trailer and the coolest thing ever occurs at about the 6 min. 5 sec mark.

OK, I'm a retard.

Buy the tickets from REI and not Georgia Tech? Can't find a damn thing about this on the Ferst Center's website.

Never mind, got it figured out.
