More information including driving directions and films selected for showing

Since at least 2001, Caltech has been a proud host of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Stopping at over 500 locations in 30 countries around the globe, the Tour celebrates the best films shown at that year's Festival in Banff, Alberta, Canada, one of the premiere exhibitions of films about mountain culture in the world. Topics of the films include mountain sports (skiing, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, BASE, and others) and exotic mountain communities living in remote corners of the Earth. Dramatic scenery, quirky comedy, artistic cinematography, and epic adventures are classic trademarks of the best Banff films.

The format of this year's event, the ~12th annual World Tour stop at Caltech, will be the same as in years past: 2-2.5 hours of total footage divided into 7-10 different films covering a wide variety of the above mentioned themes. Each film will range in length from 5-30+ minutes. There are a large number of films to choose from, even after only the best films have been chosen during the week-long Film Festival held in November. Members of the Caltech Alpine Club community gather every year in late January to determine the final list of films to be shown at our own screening in Pasadena, customized to our audience and personal taste. We also pay close attention to suggestions from years past!

In late March, we show this selection of films to what has been a sell-out crowd for as long as we can remember. Ticket prices are $12 for general audience (price goes up to $15 at the door) and $5 for Caltech students. If you plan to come, please purchase your tickets in advance from the Caltech Events ticket office here to assure that you won't miss our biggest event of the year!

Just wanted to give this thread a quick bump, seeing as it's right around the corner and the show usually sells out beforehand.

Thanks again to the Caltech Alpine Club for putting this and other great venues on the list during the year.

Hopefully will make it for the pre-show booze-fest.

Happy climbing,

Gusto
