The BANFF Mountain Film Festival is coming to Grand Junction on February 25th and 26th. The festival will be hosted at the Avalon Theater with the best action, environmental and adventure films playing. To get in for one day it will cost $25 but for a two-day ticket it will only cost $35. The doors open at 6:00 pm and the first film will start at 7:00 pm. There will be different films being shown each day.
The film festival isn’t just for entertainment; proceeds from the event will go to Colorado Canyons Association, Family Health West and Colorado national Monument Association. There are a lot of cooperate sponsors kicking in money for the world tour but some local business have helped out to bring the festival to Grand Junction. It is being presented by the Grand Junction Rotary Club and sponsored by Family Health West, bray and Fox 4.
The films featured in this year’s world tour are very diverse. They follow top action sports athletes as they tackle new terrain or simply a new obstacle. Or get to know some new faces as they find their own in this world. There are 30 films being shown over the course of the two days so anyone with an eye for a good film or just loves seeing the outdoors will be in for a treat.
The BANFF Centre for Arts and Creativity is putting on this world tour film fest, which is in its 41st year. The organization was founded in 1933 with artistic and creative development in mind. They want to inspire people to be artists, leaders and free thinkers. They want people to get out and find what motivates them creativity.
