Banff Film fest at hit at The Bing

ADVENTURE — The Banff Mountain Film Festival is delivering great adventure to sold-out audiences at The Bing during its three-day run that ends Sunday evening.

Tops on the list Saturday night were:

  •  The Asgard Project, which reminds us all that hand-cams are great for lightweight ready-any-time fllming, but nothing beats cameras and tripods for delivering footage that takes your breath away.  The northern lights photos behind Mount Asgard in Baffin Island was stunning.
  • Dream Result, featuring Tyler Bradt, who made a splash in this region last year with a spring kayak descent of Palouse Falls to set a world record. Local kayakers commented after the show that they were glad the film showed a lot of the accidents and injuries involved in waterfall jumping, including the scene of a paddler who brock his back in a plunge.  The risks are huge, and people should know it.
