Films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival

The best high adrenaline films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival are coming to Courtenay!

The Sid Williams Theatre Society presents the Radical Reels Tour, part of the theatre society’s Blue Circle Series, on Sunday March 6 at 7 p.m.

There is no better way to get stoked about skiing, biking, riding, or paddling than by the 2016 edition of the Radical Reels Tour! We’re talking jaw-dropping bike jumps, nail-biting kayak drops, and mind-blowing powder. The Radical Reels Tour, presented by The Banff Centre, continues to push boundaries with the best action sports films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Experience more than half a dozen wild action sports as seen through the eyes of some of today’s top athletes and most talented adventure sport filmmakers.

The Radical Reels Tour spans North America, bringing a variety of mountain sport films to a wide range of viewers from hard-core outdoor adventurers to weekend warriors. The Radical Reels Tour is presented by National Geographic and MSR, and sponsored by The North Face, Deuter, and Oboz, Buff and Yomads.

The Courtenay stop of the Radical Reels Tour is sponsored by Rice Toyota Scion.
