BANFF Mountain Film Festival

  • Fernst Center for the Arts (map)

Join REI and The Georgia Conservancy on Sunday, March 8 for two-installments of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Banff Mountain Film Fest is the largest and most recognized name in adventure and environmental films - bringing together movie-goers from all 7 continents! Yes, even Antarctica!

Each installment (1 PM and 7 PM) will feature different films. Georgia Conservancy's (out)House Band, City Mouse, will perform at intermission around 4 PM. For the first time in Banff Atlanta history, VIP guests can enjoy an ice cold SweetWater Brewing Co. beer at the screening!

All proceeds from the March 8 screenings will go to support the Georgia Conservancy's Heartland Rivers of Georgia Paddle Series.

This year's tour features a collection of the most inspiring and though-provoking action, environmental, and adventure mountain films. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2014/2015 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

The Georgia Conservancy's Heartland Rivers of Georgia Paddle Series features camping, paddling and stewardship on our rivers in south and central Georgia. The series brings to light conservation efforts, economic development and recreational opportunities on the Flint, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla, Ochlockonee and Savannah rivers.

Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, Georgia’s heartland rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
