The annual Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is in Port Elizabeth on Saturday evening, showcasing award-winning films of adventures by ski, bike, rock, ropes and on water.

Eleven award-winning and audience-nominated Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour films, selected from hundreds of submissions, will be shown at each screening in South Africa. They include a mix of topics and styles that are entertaining, inspiring and thought-provoking.

These films range in duration from the intense-action, two-minute kayaking video ‘Into the Ditch’ to the 37-minute documentary film ‘And then we swam’, winner of the Best Exploration & Adventure Film category.

For the tenth year, Cape Union Mart proudly hosts the screening of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour films at Ster-Kinekor cinemas. From Antarctica to Iceland, the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour visits 44 countries to bring a selection of films on exploration, adventure, culture, environment, and mountain films to growing audiences.

Regular audiences will delight in seeing some of their favourite adventurers in action. Danny MacAskill is up to his mountain biking feats again in ‘Danny MacAskill - The Ridge’, Rush Sturges kayaks in an urban environment in ‘Into the Ditch’ and Alex Honnold climbs desert towers in ‘Sufferfest 2’.

South African audiences are also treated to the screening of an additional five-minute film: the winning submission from the Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge.

This annual film competition encourages South African filmmakers and athletes to capture and celebrate local outdoor culture.

The 2015 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is screened at Port Elizabeth: The Bridge, Saturday, 31 October 2015 (one night only) at 20:00. All eleven films are shown at each screening.

Tickets can be purchased directly through Ster-Kinekor. Book online at www.sterkinekor.com or call Ster-Kinekor Ticket line on 082 16789. Ticket prices are the same as a standard Ster-Kinekor ticket.
