Each year, the best mountain sports films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival are collected into a traveling film festival dubbed Radical Reels. And every year, mountain sports enthusiasts come out in droves to see outrageous footage of mountain climbers, skiers, snowboarders, kayakers, cyclists and more on the big screen. This year’s films include tales of free ascent climbing in Canada, French free falling flyers, skiing in the Swiss Alps and more.
