Banff Mountain Film Festival to Benefit Friends of the Smokies

The Banff Mountain Film Festival returns to Knoxville's Bijou Theatre next month. Friends of the Smokies is the proud non-profit partner for presenting sponsor and host Blue Ridge Mountain Sports. Proceeds from the 2010 & 2011 Banff festivals in Knoxville raised more than $1,000 for conservation programs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

This year's festival will be held at the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville on March 26, 2012.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is the largest and one of the most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. The World Tour showcases award-winning films and audience favorites from approximately 300 films entered from over 30 countries with stops planned in 360 locations worldwide. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures, to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the tour is an exhilarating exploration and celebration of the spirit of adventure.

Based on the film trailer below, it looks like they will have several exciting films again this year.
