    FOR THE LOVE OF MARY

    6 min / Filmmaker: Simon Perkins & Kirk Horton​

    Try telling 97-year-old George Etzweiler you're too old for running! He started competing in the annual 7.6 mile race up Mount Washington aged 69... and still takes part nearly 30 years later.

     

    And more important than his lucky green running shorts, George carries something special in every step: the memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.

    ICE & PALMS

    32 min / Filmmaker: Jochen Mesle, Max Kroneck

    'Unorthodox’ is the word used to describe German friends Max and Jochen’s many adventures, and their latest expedition – five weeks, 1,800km and 35,000km vertical metres self-propelled across the Alps – is no different. Starting in Germany and finishing at the Mediterranean, Ice and Palms tells of a raucous bikepacking journey, summiting mountains and skiing iconic lines along the way.

    THIS MOUNTAIN LIFE

    38 min / Filmmaker:

    Grand Baldwin, Jen Rustemeyer

    Martina and her 60-year-old mum Tania embark on an epic ski traverse from Vancouver to Alaska – six months and 2,300km of journeying though relentless mountain wilderness.

     

    This Mountain Life is a multi-award-winning film and a riveting portrait of the human passion for adventure, set high in the peaks of British Columbia, Canada

    RJ RIPPER

    19 min / Filmmakers: Joey Schusler

    Witness a mesmerising blend of mountain sports and scenery as world class mountain biker Rajesh (RJ) Magar explores his homeland of Nepal, from the chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the mind-blowing Himalayan mountains beyond. An inspirational story of perseverance with high-adrenaline riding.

    THE MIRNAVATOR

    11 min / Filmmaker: Sarah Menzies​

    Ultra-runners overcome obstacles with every stride. Force of Nature Mirna Valerio never thought she would have to overcome the negative voices that believe she doesn't belong in the sport

    SKIER VS DRONE

    4 min / Filmmakers: Mike Douglas

    It’s a classic battle of man vs machine. Olympic bronze medallist

    Victor Muffat-Jeandet takes on drone pilot Jordan Temkin down the slalom ski course at Snowbird in Utah.

    ROGUE ELEMENTS

    4 min / Filmmaker: Teton Gravity Research

    Likened to plunging into an abyss, Corbet’s Couloir is America’s most feared ski run, terrifying to ski and snowboard even in the best conditions. Attempting it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, as Casey Brown and Cam McCaul find out in the first ever two-wheeled descent of the route…

    FAR OUT: KAI JONES

    5 min / Filmmakers: Teton Gravity Research

    Kai Jones may be only 11, but in the mountains age doesn’t matter. This next level kid is following in his family’s ski tracks… right into backflips and tricks off cliffs. Watch in awe as one of the world’s most promising young freeride skiers takes on the mountain.

    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.
