The Banff Mountain Film Festival in Canada showcases hundreds of films geared towards thrill-seekers. They capture exhilarating experiences from across the globe, focusing on outdoor adventures and the environment at large. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings a smaller selection of these films to more than 550 towns and cities spread throughout 40 countries, including New Haven.
On Sunday, February 23rd, the Shubert Theater will screen these adrenaline-inducing flicks. Grab a ticket ($20+) to explore far-off landscapes and meet the people who inhabit them or experience the rush of zooming down a mountain on a set of skis. Since the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the most acclaimed mountain festivals on the planet, you can expect a lineup of impressive works when the festival stops in at the Shubert Theater.
