Banff Mountain Film Festival in State College

Posted by Scott Woods on April 22nd, 2008

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is coming to State College this Sunday the 27th and Monday the 28th. This is a collection of fantastic outdoor movies that spans two nights (different movies each night). If you haven’t been to see it before, it’s really worth checking out. Here is the trailer for this year’s tour:

The movies are usually pretty diverse; some are primarily cultural, some are conservation oriented, and some are all action. All of them are usually excellent.

The Sierra Club Moshannon Group has more details on their site, including a PDF of the films that will be showing. In terms of climbing movies, there’s a section from “King Lines” on Sunday with Chris Sharma deep-water soloing in Mallorca, Spain. On Monday there’s a film about climbing photography, and a film with Will Gadd climbing ice in underground mines in Sweden (!).

These nights are also a lot of fun because it brings together so many people in the local outdoor community. It’s a great place to meet people and see old friends. Oh, and there are some great door prizes too. Buy your tickets in advance from one of the places below to save a few bucks.

C3PA will have a booth there both nights. Stop by and say hi!
