If you love danger, adventure, mountains or a mixture of all three, the Banff Mountain Film Festival is definitely for you. Touring around Australia this year, the festival, which originates from the prestigious Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival in Canada, will take place in Adelaide on Saturday May 21.
The festival screenings present over two and a half hours of intense and inspiring mountain adventure films, spanning from the talented exploits of skiers, snowboarders and mountain bikers, to the gruelling challenges of mountaineers and climbers, all of which are likely to make you want to set off on your own journey.
The Adelaide leg of the festival will feature screenings at the Capri Theatre in Goodwood, with a matinee session running from 3:00pm - 6:00pm and an evening session running from 7:30pm - 10:30pm. You can book tickets for the Adelaide screenings online, which costs $30.50 for adults and $20.50 for children.
In Canada, the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival takes place over nine days every November with more than 300 mountain films shown. A select few award winning films then travel around 40 countries to be screened as part of the festival's world tour. Forget Bali or Thailand for your next holiday, perhaps a visit to Canada should be on the cards this year!

A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
