Extraordinary family adventures win out at the Banff Film Festival

This year’s Banff Mountain Film Festival features two new film collections with an astonishing range of themes. Every one is exceptional, extreme, thrilling and phenomenally adventurous. You can mix Dan MacAskill’s incredible mountain bike descent of the soaring 500m Dubh Slabs in Skye with the irresistible cuteness and fun of four legged running and biking buddies in A Dog’s Tale.

There’s inspiration of the most extraordinary kind in award-winning Dream Mountain which follows Nepali mountaineer Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita as she climbs 6,440m high Cholatse in the Everest region, along with her husband and, their two year old son. Then there’s Follow The Mountain, a stunning celebration of the dramatic Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia in Turkey through the intense passion and daring of professional cyclist, Kilian Bron.

The biggest outdoor adventures look even more amazing on the big screen

Your kids may already have seen some of these films on YouTube, but nothing compares to the big screen experience. It’s completely immersive and really does justice to the combined skill of the world’s most extreme adventurers and their equally daring cinematographers.

Of course the locations are remarkable too, ranging from the Arctic Ocean to the highest peaks of Colorado and Switzerland. And, as well as extreme mountain biking and phenomenal mountaineering, there’s snowboarding, rock climbing and even moving Polar expeditions.
