A travelling festival of "mountain life" related films, The Banff Mountain Film Festival
, arrives in Halifax next week, Wednesday January 25 and Thursday January 26. The screenings take place at Empire Park Lane
(Park Lane Mall, 5657 Spring Garden Road) at 7pm. Tickets are available at The Trail Shop
(6210 Quinpool Road, 423-8726) but are going fast. It's $15 per night, or $25 if you want to see both evenings.
And that are they showing? We can't tell you that yet. The program is finalized just before the screening, based on input from previous showings. What we can tell you is that the two nights will show two, totally different programs, and the films will be all about the mountain; documentaries, extreme sports shorts and films of various lengths and styles.
And if you're really keen, The Banff Mountain Film Festival also shows on Tuesday, January 24 at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville.
