Posted by Big Gav in banff mountain film festival
I went to see this year's Banff Mountain Film Festival recently which was entertaining as always.
The films featured (at least the ones I remember) are listed below - the kayak guys probably made the biggest impression, largely due to the insanity of what they were doing (with a honorary award to the old Kiwis and some of their amazing footage from the 1970's - AJ Hackett is a funny guy)...
Dream Result - "Top whitewater paddlers travel the world to explore the limits of possibility"
Last Paradise - "Travels through almost 50 years of adventure in the remotest regions of New Zealand"
Euli Steck - The Swiss Machine - "A record-breaking speed alpinist takes his high-speed game to Yosemite"
Life Cycles - "This beautiful celebration of the bicycle is sure to amaze anyone who has ridden one"
Azadi: Freedom - "Skiing plays a role in rebuilding tourism in a country torn by a bloody insurgency"
Into Darkness - "Cavers discover a fantastic world unlike anything we experience on the surface"
The Longest Way - "A one-year walk from Beijing to Urumqi, condensed into five minutes"
