Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Los Altos

The festival is actually a 2 nite showing - films differ each day but I'm only posting for Friday night. Feel free to purchase tickets for either day or both.  $20/showing. 

Will call opens at 6:00, doors open at 6:30 and showing at 7:00.  Will be in the will call line at 6:00. Will try to reserve seats but no guarantee. 

As mountain bikers, we understand the feel of the mountain as well as respect for the environment.   

*Film list subject to change. Here's a link to buy tickets and recap of the planned films.

1. Split of a Second2012, Sweden, 8 min (wingsuit flying) From filmmakers Björn Fävremark and John Boisen. 99.9% of time is spent in preparation for living a few moments of joy.The other .1% is to only be here now, and step off that cliff!

2. Stand (special edit)2013, Canada, 23 min (SUP, environment) From filmmakers Anthony Bonello and Nicolas Teichrob. With a pipeline proposal always comes talk of what will be gained – but shouldn’t we be asking, ‘What do we stand to lose?’ A hauntingly beautiful examination of the people and culture of the Great Bear Rainforest– and the lives of those committed to defending its fragile ecosystems and fjords, one paddlestroke at a time.

3. Ready to Fly2012, USA, 56 min (ski jumping)2012 Best Feature-Length Mountain Film (for original 76 minute version)From filmmakers William A. Kerig and Scott Zeller. Full of pluck and determination, a woman battles massive obstacles not only to achieve her dream, but also to help change the world for other women. In an emotional and triumphant journey with more ups and downs than a ski jumping competition itself, Lindsey Van and her colleagues take us along on their 15-year fight to achieve equality in the Olympic Winter Games.

4. Sea of Rock 2012, Switzerland, 12 min (cycling) From filmmaker Sebastian Doerk, Infinite Trails Production. A bicycle found lodged on a climbing route in the Austrian Alps inspires two expert riders to follow in the treads of the early cyclists, down the über -gnarly slopes of the Sea of Rock.

5. I AM RED 2013, USA, 4 min (environmental) From filmmaker Peter McBride. A visual poem of the Colorado River delivers a simple yet powerful message.

6. High Tension (Reel Rock[masked], USA, 36 min (mountaineering)Best Film — Mountain Culture From filmmakers Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen, Zachary Barr and Josh Lowell. Flying fists, obscenities, and death threats at 23,000 feet? Is this the new Everest reality? This film takes a closer look at the 2013 incident at Camp II that made international headlines and had climbers Ueli Steck, Simone Moro, and Jonathan Griffith running for their lives.

7. Kayak Free Kayaking 2013, USA, 5 mins (paddling) From filmmakers Mark Odlum and John Dabrowski. World Kayak Champion Trip Deacon pushesthe limits of the new sport he created- Kayak Free Kayaking.

    If anyone interested my wife, irina, and I are going to grab a quick bite and drink at Los Altos grill prior. We plan to be there by 5 and leave around 6 pm. Join us if you like. Easier to spot irina with long curly blonde hair. We will be just around the bar area.

      If nobody needs your tickets, there will be no problem selling them at the event. There was an over abundance of people looking last year so bring them along and you should not have a problem.

    If you do not have tix for event, but want to go, I may have 2 available for sale. Just let me know at [masked].

    I hope everyone who RSVPd for this event already has a ticket as the event is sold out. It would be fun to sit together or meet up after the event to discuss the films. If you know of a place that we can meetup afterwards that's nearby and not too loud, please do share. I probably won't be able to meet up before the show but if there is interest, feel free to announce it, too. Looking forward to seeing all on Friday!

    Usually REI has coupons for 20% off any one full-price REI - Brand item and they have door prizes so it is a fun evening. Will call works well and is easy for those who are anxious about that.

    There is a delivery option where they will mail you the tickets USPS, if you prefer. Be sure to select at checkout. Tickets seem to be going fast. Note: 6:00 meetup time is for those who prefer will call tickets. Otherwise, doors open at 6:30pm. Will try to coordinate a meeting place with those who sign up through this meetup.

    We have helped out at these for the last few years, as members of Snowlands Network. The films have been great and they have or come very close to selling out for the last several years. Unfortunately, we will be in Phoenix.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
