[ARCHIVED] Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour Comes to Williams Lake December 1

Media Release - Banff Mountain Film Festival 2022

The ever-popular Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is once again coming back to Williams Lake on Thursday, December 1.

 

Hot on the heels of the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, the World Tour hits the road annually with stops planned in roughly 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour celebrates the amazing achievements of outdoor storytelling and filmmaking worldwide.

From the over 400 entries submitted to the festival each year, award winners and audience favourites are among the films carefully selected to play in theatres around the world.

Traveling to remote vistas, analyzing topical environmental issues and bringing audiences up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2022/23 World Tour promises to be an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

Join the City of Williams Lake and staff at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex when the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Williams Lake to the Gibraltar Room on December 1, 2022. Doors open at 5:45 pm with the show starting at 6:30 pm.

Many thanks to our local sponsors: Mt. Timothy Recreation Resort, Caribou Ski Source for Sports, Goat FM, Cariboo Country Radio, Williams Lake Tribune, Cycle Logic, Fox Mountain Brewing Co., Sport Chek and Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed, who have donated some phenomenal draw prizes to be awarded during the show’s intermission.

Tickets go on sale Monday, November 14 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex front desk and are $20 each. It is recommended to purchase tickets well in advance of the show as they sell out quickly.
