A SMALL fes­ti­val with big am­bi­tions took place last week­end.

For the first time, the Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Fes­ti­val de­liv­ered a ‘MiniFest’ in as­so­ci­a­tion with West High­land Col­lege UHI.

The event, at the Ne­vis Cen­tre last Fri­day Oc­to­ber 28, was an op­por­tu­nity to see world- class ad­ven­ture films with the au­di­ence be­ing treated to a range of films from the ‘Best of Banff’ ar­chives.

The event was a pre­cur­sor for the main fes­ti­val which will be held from Wed­nes­day Fe­bru­ary 15 to Sun­day Fe­bru­ary 19, 2017.
