Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour

Remember a while back when I told you about Aweberg, a film about a guy who who went iceberg climbing in Makkovik, Labrador? Well, you can see that film this weekend in St. John's and a bunch of other great short films too at the local presentation of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. It takes place this weekend on Saturday, January 28th and Sunday, January 28th. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show begins at 7:00pm. You can see films about snowboarding; ice climbing; cycling 8000 kilometers across Asia; disabled veterans, severely injured during the war in Iraq, travelling to the Rocky Mountains to participate in an adaptive winter sports program, as well as many more films. Tickets are available at Bennington Gate (Churchill Square), Free Ride Mountain Sports (Water St.), and Wallnuts Climbing Gym (Old Pennywell Rd.) or at the door (2nd floor of MUN's Inco Innovation Centre). But be warned, the organizers of this festival are friends of mine and they tell me that tickets for Saturday night are going fast so don't put off buying them for too long.
