banff logo We start off the afternoon with five great films from the Banff World Tour. After the interval, we are thrilled to introduce the elite mountain bike racer, Lee Craigie.


 

Viacruxus

2018, Spain, 11 minutes. Filmmaker – Ignasi López Fàbregas

Marcel and Andrezj are a legendary pair of mountaineers. They have been the first ones to conquer the highest and hardest peaks. Despite their different temperaments, they make a great team. Now they face their biggest challenge – reaching the vigrgin summit of ones of the World’s highest unclimbed mountains. In order to achieve this, they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and stand each others company for a long time! But Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow…

 


Liv along the Way

2018, Canada , 22 minutes Filmmakers – Mike Douglas and Anthony Bonello
Ever since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teenager, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 of the 4,000- metre peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she has learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.

 


For the Love of Mary

2018, USA, 6 minutes. Filmmaker – Simon Perkins and Kirk Horton
When 97-year-old runner George Etzweiler dons his lucky ancient green running shorts, he’s not just running to the summit of Mt. Washington, George carries something else special with him: The memory of his late wife of 68 years.

 

 


Craig’s Reaction

2018, USA, 24 minutes. Filmmaker – Cameron Maier
Since a 100 foot fall in 2002 that took his right leg and left him with spinal injuries, Colorado climber Craig DeMartino has led an extraordinary life, including lauded First Disabled and In-A Day ascents on El Capitan. But his day-to-day life story is the one that should be making headlines.

 


Skier Vs. Done

2018, Canada, 4 minutes. Filmmakers – Mike Douglas
In Utah, it’s a classic battle of man versus machine, but Olympic Bronze Medalist ski racer Victor Muffat-Jeandet is confident of victory against drone pilot Jordan Temkin.

There will be an interval for 30 minutes. Refreshments are available upstairs and downstairs in the foyers. Don’t miss the trade stands and voluntary organisations in the Ustinov Room (upstairs). There are also art exhibitions downstairs.
