Now in its 39th year, the Banff Mountain Film Festival has a rich history of taking audiences to some of the most remote and beautiful places on earth.
Through an expertly curated collection of more than two dozen films, we get to experience high-adrenaline sports and the magnificence of the natural world from the comforts of our theater seat. The festival runs three nights, and the lineup for each date is different, so the hardcore among us will be digging in for an epic weekend.
INFO: 7 p.m. Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $20. 423-8209.
