This October, the annual Banff International Mountain Film Festival comes to South Africa, bringing with it films of adventures by ski, bike, rock, ropes and on water.
For the eleventh year, Cape Union Mart is hosting the screening of the 2016 World Tour films at Ster-Kinekor cinemas from Friday October 21 to Saturday October 29, showing 11 award-winning and audience-nominated World Tour films, selected from hundreds of festival submissions.
These films range in duration from the intense-action packed, three-minute surfing video Living Rivers – Surf to the 40-minute documentary film Reel Rock 10: A Line Across the Sky, winner of the Best Climbing Film category.
South African audiences will also be treated to the screening of an additional five-minute film – the winning submission from the Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge, Mowbray to Mowbray Ridge, by 23-year-old film-maker, Ziyaad Solomon.
This annual film competition encourages South African film-makers and athletes to capture and celebrate local outdoor and adventure culture.
The 2016 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is screened at Ster-Kinekor cinemas at Cavendish Square and Tygervalley Centre, with shows starting at 8pm.
All 11 films are shown at each screening.
