Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Banff Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val will re­turn to Mt Buller for the sev­enth year run­ning on Satur­day, June 27, and is set to wow crowds again with another se­ries of awein­spir­ing films.

Tak­ing in more than 275 com­mu­ni­ties in 30 coun­tries across the globe, the tour fea­tures a col­lec­tion of films inspired by moun­tain cul­ture - from skiing, snow­board­ing and ice-climb­ing to base jump­ing, moun­tain bik­ing and the alpine en­vi­ron­ment.

The tour is pro­duced by Moun­tain Cul­ture at The Banff Cen­tre in Canada, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­motes un­der­stand­ing, ap­pre­ci­a­tion and ed­u­ca­tion on the world’s moun­tain ar­eas.

The fes­ti­val started in 1976, and each year a se­lec­tion of the best films are cho­sen to tour the world.

Mt Buller is the only Aus­tralian snow re­sort to host the fes­ti­val, at the re­sort’s 180-seat cin­ema.

Mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager for Mt Buller Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Man­age­ment, Gil­lian Dob­son, said the fes­ti­val is al­ways a great night.

“The Banff Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val is one of our favourite events on the Mt Buller cal­en­dar, and has be­come a re­ally pop­u­lar event with lo­cals and visi­tors alike – and for good rea­son,” Ms Dob­son said.

“There is al­ways a fan­tas­tic line-up of films tak­ing in all as­pects of out­door ad­ven­ture, with jaw-drop­ping and truly in­spir­ing films show­cas­ing peo­ple do­ing amaz­ing things in the in­cred­i­ble en­vi­ron­ment we live in.

“The Banff Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val is a great night out at Aus­tralia’s high­est cin­ema here at Mt Buller, with drinks and snacks avail­able, as well as some great prizes up for grabs.”

Films will be shown at the Mt Buller Cin­ema on Satur­day, June 27 at 7pm with doors open­ing from 6:30pm.
