|The Banff Film Festival, based out of Canada, showcases mesmerizing outdoors films that are hard to catch outside of film festivals. |
Thursday, February 8 at 7 p.m.
First Ascent: Thailand (USA/2006/8 min) With sea below, and no rope, climbers make breathtaking ascents.
Tyrol—Land in the Mountains (Austria/2001/ 10 min) Georg Riha's images of the Tyrolean Alps are complemented by Philip Glass' music.
Exploring The Mother of Waters (Australia/2006/45 min) The first complete navigation of the Mekong River, from its source in Tibet to the South China Sea.
Aweberg (Canada/2006/26 min) Special Jury Mention. Top ice climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth take on icebergs.
Conversing with Aotearoa/New Zealand (USA/2006/15 min) New Zealanders reflect on their personal connection with their land.
Cayesh—The Calling (USA/2006/17 min) A one-day ascent of a new route, filmed entirely by the climbers.
Ride of the Mergansers (USA/2004/11 min) The dramatic and heart-warming story of the hooded merganser, a rare and reclusive duck found only in North America.
These films will probably sell out, so you would be wise to purchase your ticket online at the National Geographic site.
