UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, celebrating the 43rd annual festival and 28 years in Santa Barbara with 16 of the world’s best films and videos on mountain subjects from extreme sports to mountain culture and environment on Tues., Feb. 26 & Wed., Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arlington Theatre, 1317 State St., Santa Barbara.
A Santa Barbara institution, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is a perennial fan favorite. Featuring the world’s best films and videos on mountain subjects, the tour awes viewers with thrills and grandeur captured in exotic locations the world over. The show’s wide variety of film subjects will amaze audiences, with an entirely different program of films screening each night. This year’s lineup will take us from high in the Alps to beneath the surface of the sea; showcase bind-boggling feats from a boy of 11 years old boy and a man of 84 years young; expose us to the oldest extreme sport in North America – Blackfoot bareback horseracing; introduce us to people overcoming incredible obstacles; and more.
