Go faster, steeper, higher, deeper on film

Faster, steeper, higher, deeper — the Banff Mountain Film Festival Radical Reels tour is coming to Courtenay.

Catch the steepest and deepest in high-adrenaline outdoor sport films when the Radical Reels 2012 Tour comes to the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay this Saturday at 7 p.m.

Hurtle down steep untouched powder, feel the cold spray of stomach-dropping kayak first descents, fly high with the world’s wildest BASE jumpers, and much more in extreme mountain sports.

Growing out of the famous Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, Radical Reels screens the best in action sports filmmaking, audience-tested and programmed for maximum excitement.

The Radical Reels Tour kicked off in the winter of 2004 in a limited number of special locations, and now visits over 50 cities in the U.S. and Canada. \These films feature a fresh approach, a new sport, and a radically independent spirit.

This year’s film list includes: All.I.Can: Perseverance; The Art of Flight; Cat Skiing; Concrete Dreams; From the Inside Out; Frontier; Here We Go Again; Miller’s Thriller: Ski BASE; Narsicame; Reel Rock: Race for the Nose; and Whitewater Grand Prix. Please note, parental guidance is advised.

Local sponsor Valhalla Pure Outfitters has provided a number of amazing prizes to be given away at the show that will keep any action enthusiast looking good.

The Radical Reels Tour visits the Sid Williams Theatre on March 17 at 7 p.m in Courtenay. Tickets can be purchased at the Sid ticket centre, by phone 250-338-2430 or online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com.

The Radical Reels Tour is presented by National Geographic and sponsored by the North Face, Deuter, and Timex. The Banff Mountain Film Festival is a founding member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film, a program of the Banff Centre.
