Banff Film Festival Ticket Giveaway

Sometimes, when the nights are short and the weather makes the opportunities to get your adventure fix lower, it is good to fuel the inspiration tank by watching someone else have epic adventures instead.  It may fuel the desire, plant some seeds for the future or simply be a chance to gasp and stare in awe with a room full of other adrenaline seekers.  The Banff Mountain Film Festival UK and Ireland Tour is likely to be the stoke your fire needs and the organisers have kindly offered Peak Mountaineering a pair of tickets to give away.  We can now offer you the chance to attend for FREE with our latest Friendly Friday Giveaway.

This year’s tour looks set to be just about the best yet.  As usual there are 2 programmes and each has a unique and varied range of films.  In the red programme there are 7 films.  Dog Power charts the special relationship that develops between a wannabe musher and his husky puppy.  There is Fledglings which joins ace climbers Matt Segal and Cedar Wright learning to paraglide while Four Mums in a Boat tells the inspirational tale of four Yorkshire women who became the oldest female crew to row any ocean. Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out is Danny up to his crazy biking best as he takes a ride around the Highlands.  We love the sound of Max Your Days which reminds us to squeeze adventure into every minute.  Metronomic is all about the crazy antics of high-level balance athletes in the Verdon and, finally, there is Young Guns which follows elite teenage climbers Ashima and Kai as they travel the world seeking vertical test pieces.  

The blue programme also features 6 films.  Doing It Scared tells the epic tale of climber Paul Pritchard returning to complete unfinished business on the Totem Pole, a climb that nearly killed him many years earlier. Dream Ride promises a magical mountain bike journey through beautiful landscapes and Give me Five follows a group of free fall flyers planning the stunt of a lifetime in Chamonix.  La Liste sounds like a true epic as extreme skier Jeremie Heitz attempts a descent many think is too dangerous and Locked In follows a team attempting a 13 day kayak descent in New Guinea.  Lastly, Mira is a truly inspirational film charting the journey of Nepalese Mira Rai as she breaks down cultural barriers to run a long distance mountain race.  Full details about all the films are on the festival website here.

This quick hit giveaway is only live for 2 weeks as the film showings are already starting, but there are still plenty of screening options stretching all the way into May (dates are listed here) so you’ll have plenty of choice.  All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to send us the answer to the question below via our Contact Form here.  Good Luck.
