Grab your hiking boots and popcorn, outdoor people. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Austin May 5 and 6.
The two-day festival features a selection of short films about people doing cool stuff in the mountains, from mountain biking, skiing, and paddling to rock climbing and other extreme sports. (And did we mention tooth brushing?) It’s also a great place to mingle with people who’d rather head outside than flop on a couch.
This year marks the 16th year that Whole Earth Provision Company has hosted the tour in Austin. It’s the 10th year that Texas State Parks – which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year – will benefit from the fund-raiser.
Tickets are $26.23 per night and available online at the Paramount Theatre website.
Each night showcases a different collection of films, selected from those shown at the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival in Canada. The tour travels to more than 500 communities and 40 countries during the year.
