    THE FROZEN ROAD

    24 min / Filmmaker: Ben Page

    Yorkshireman Ben Page sought an adventure of perfect solitude in the Canadian Arctic. But the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable environment are a long way from the romanticisms of a Jack London book. On a wild bikepacking journey, as the latitude increases and the mercury falls below -30C, Ben discovers what it truly means to travel alone in this great emptiness.

    STUMPED

    25 min / Filmmaker: Cedar Wright & Taylor Keating

    Climber Maureen Beck may have been born missing her lower left arm, but that hasn’t stopped her from going hard. She pushes her ‘stump’ to the limit, tackling the tough grade of 5.12, while sinking the occasional early morning beer. She isn’t making excuses for herself though. “I don’t want to just be a good one-armed climber,” says Maureen. “I want to be a good climber.”

    EDGES

    9 min / Filmmakers: Katie Stjernholm

    Yvonne Dowlen has been ice skating for as long as she can remember – and she insists that, at 90, it’s easier to skate than it is to walk! Her elegance on ice reflects the decades she spent travelling the world as a performer, and then as a teacher. Skating helped her recover from the most challenging times of her life, and the message here is simple: keep doing what you love.

    PLANET EARTH

    7 min / Filmmakers: BBC

    Death-defying free solo rock climbing is a part of life for some animals on our

    Planet Earth II: Mountain Ibex.

    DUG OUT (LONG VERSION)

    42 min / Filmmaker: Benjamin Sadd

    Mankind has been using dugout canoes for over 8,000 years. But this doesn’t mean that building one from scratch is easy, as film-maker Benjamin Sadd and artist James Trundle, both from the south of England, discover on a journey to the Ecuadorian Amazon, where they live with an indigenous community, learn how to build a canoe and then take it on a journey down the river. What could go wrong?

    WHY?

    7 min / Filmmakers: Hugo Clouzeau

    Iceland. A cold, rugged and forbidding landscape where powerful rivers plunge through bedrock gorges, over massive waterfalls towards the sea. A crew of French kayakers travel here to ask the question we have all asked ourselves in the outdoors at some point: “Why? Why do we do this?”.

    IMAGINATION

    4 min / Filmmaker: Sherpas Cinema

    Imagination taps into the beauty of a child’s daydreams. Sitting in the back of his parents’ car, he imagines being a skier doing all sorts of crazy tricks down the snow-filled urban landscape drifting past the car, when suddenly, his imagination comes to life!

    SURF THE LINE

    2 min / Filmmaker: Hello Emotion

    The Flying Frenchies are a group of multi-talented friends who like BASE-jumping and mountaineering, but who are also clowns, acrobats and musicians. Their latest film sees them playing in the Vercors mountain range, where they slice through the air on a 600m-high highline, reaching speeds of up to 75kph zipline-style, before using their BASE-jumping skills to dismount.

    ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

    Le Banff Mountain Film Festival est reconnu comme étant le plus grand et le plus prestigieux festival de films d’aventure en montagne au monde.
    C’est le travail d’une grande équipe qui, avec passion, dévouement et amour de la montagne, oeuvre une année durant à la réalisation de ce merveilleux Festival.
    Une compétition cinématographique internationale née en 1975 et qui se tient chaque année le premier week-end de novembre au creux des Rocheuses canadiennes dans le village de Banff (Alberta, Canada). Le Festival fêtera en 2017 ses 41 annees d’existence.

    Le Festival attire les réalisateurs les plus talentueux de la planète ayant réussi à capturer à travers la lentille le réel esprit de l’aventure.
    Chaque année, pas moins de 380 films entrent en lisse pour tenter de décrocher l’un des très disputés « awards ».
    Au terme du Festival les meilleurs films partent en tournée a travers le monde sous le label Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.

    En 2018, la tournee mondiale visitera 42 pays réunissant quelques 800.000 festivaliers.

     

    Au Luxembourg, la tournée fera escale le 18 avril 2017 à Utopolis Kirchberg.

    Le temps d’une soirée (très animée) vous découvrirez les exploits les plus audacieux, les histoires d’aventure les plus émouvantes et y rencontrerez certainement quelques aventuriers belges venus profiter, eux aussi des grandes aventures du moment.

    Nous esperons vivement vous rencontrez lors d’une des projections de la tournee belge en mars prochain.
