From scaling buildings in Boulder, traversing the East Ridge in Annapurna to a young disabled athlete raising the limits of human achievement on the ski slopes, mountain adventure has many avenues.
This year’s Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour captures them in Hood River at the Skylight Theatre Friday through Sunday only with showtimes at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and 5:30 and 8:45 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Films in this year’s tour bring the spirit of adventure to life on the screen. A wide variety of stories — from mountain sports, mountain culture and the environment — will be covered. The tour’s lineup includes films from Canada, the United States, Poland, Norway, Slovakia, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
Tour highlights are plentiful. In “Front Range Freaks - Urban Ape,” renowned climber Timmy O’Neill turns his howmetown of Boulder into a playground where he scales buildings, leaps across walls and hassles locals, all in the name of fun. While on the other side, Kevin Connolly, a 16-year-old champion ski racer who was born with no legs, displays his positive attitude and commitment to racing.
