Banff Mountain Film Festival - Vancouver, WA 2014
The 2013/2014 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings films from the 38th annual Banff Mountain Film Festival to more than 40 countries around the world. From an exploration of remote landscapes and mountain cultures to adrenaline-fueled action sports.
Here's the tentative list of films that will be selected from for the show.
Into the Mind Fabulous imagery and outstanding cinematography blur the lines between dream-state and reality to immerse us in the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. The consequences are extreme. He...re, outcome is determined by grand experience as the story draws us in deeper and as the boundary between reality and imagination disappears.
Keeper of the Mountains Elizabeth Hawley bucked the conventions of her time by settling alone in Kathmandu in 1960, where she began chronicling Himalayan expeditions for The Himalayan Database. Even as she turns 90, she continues to update these records with rigorous accuracy and dedication.
Valhalla The sweetest adventure from Sweetgrass Productions yet! Searching for the heat of a fire still burning in the lands of deep snow, one man rediscovers the freedom of his youth among a unique community of outcasts dwelling on the fringe. In exquisite cinematography bursting with mind-blowing colour, characters blend with a dollop of soulful nostalgia to create a vivid explosion. Valhalla is nirvana. Ski naked!
Cascada Paddler and cinematographer alike find perfection in a world beyond the unexpected.
Stand With a pipeline proposal always comes talk of what will be gained but shouldn't we be asking, 'What do we stand to lose?' A hauntingly beautiful examination of the people and culture of the Great Bear Rainforest and the lives of those committed to defending its fragile ecosystems and fjords, one paddle stroke at a time.
North of the Sun Tucked between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the rocky slopes of a remote, arctic island, two young Norwegian adventurers discover their own private playground. They build themselves a cabin out of flotsam while clearing the beach of debris, then spend the long winter skiing and surfing in the haunting low light. This was the Grand Prize winner and got the People's Choice Award at the recent festival in Banff.
Split of a Second 99.9% of time is spent in preparation for living a few moments of joy. The other .1% is to only be here now, and step off that cliff!
Return of Tepuis A wee pebble toad living in the crevices of the Tepuis of South America is the missing link to understanding the age of the species as well as the age of the Tepuis themselves.
Flow: The Elements of Free Ride Delight in the flowing symbiosis of freeriding.
I Am Red A visual poem of the Colorado River delivers a simple yet powerful message.
