The BANFF Mountain Film Fest world tour swings through Charleston every year and every year we can’t help but feel a rush of adrenaline at the mere mention of the event’s name. Held in Banff, Alberta before touring 40 countries around the globe, the fest is deemed the “largest and the most prestigious mountain festival in the world” which raises the question, How many mountain fests are there in the world? How much are we really missing out on? No matter, the BANFF film fest is here to serve our adrenaline-junky needs with flicks that feature sports, culture, and environmental topics. An example of these badass films: Last year’s fest winner was a film called Shift, about a group of aboriginal kids who constructed biking trails through the Yukon wilderness.
