Outdoor lovers have a reason to brave the elements next weekend as the Banff Film Festival returns for two nights at the Colonial Theatre. The festival takes place on Friday, February 29, and Saturday, March 1, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and shows starting at 7:30 p.m.

The film festival, which is hosted by Philadelphia Rock Gym (PRG), features "...short documentaries about biking, kayaking, skiing, rock climbing and mountain cultures, the festival aims to appeal to many walks of life."

Part of the proceeds from this year's festival will go to help The Schuylkill Canal Association.

Tickets are being sold on the phone by calling PRG at 610-666-7673 until the day before the shows and then they also will be available at the door. Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is one not to miss. I've been involved in it since its inception over 10 years ago and it just gets better every year. There's always a great variety of films ranging from outdoor thrills to extreme comedy to serious environmental & social issues. This is a must-not-miss weekend of cinema!
