RTPI Brings the Spirit of Outdoor Adventure to Jamestown

Posted on Mar 28, 2017

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is the most prestigious mountain festival in the world. Right after the festival, held every fall in Banff, Alberta, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour starts to travel the globe with stops in about 450 communities and 40 countries.

The 2016/2017 World Tour features an exhilarating and provocative collection of films that explore the mountain world, highlighting new landscapes and remote cultures, and exposes audiences to exciting adventures and adrenaline-packed sports.

At each screening around the world, audiences will see a selection of award-winning films and crowd favorites from the hundreds of films entered into the annual festival.

Join the Roger Tory Peterson Institute when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Jamestown, at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts on Wednesday, April 12th at 7:00pm.

Films featured in the Jamestown screening will include:

The Super Salmon (2016) – Those who plan to construct a hydroelectric mega-dam on Alaska’s Susitna River say it wouldn’t affect the salmon runs because of its location – upstream of where fish usually swim. Tell that to the Super Salmon.

Dog Power (2016) – Get a fascinating view of the world of dog-powered sports and the special bond between dogs and their humans. Both share a passion for living, working and playing together outside in different forms of the sled-dog and musher relationship.
