Films of outdoors

THE Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is back in the UK and will touch down at the Hexagon in Reading on March 30.

The evening will comprise a series of short exhilarating adventure films, starring the world’s top adventurers on exciting journeys.

The tour includes 14 diverse films, featuring everything from tales of high-adrenaline action to poignant environmental documentaries. There’s also a significant focus on women in adventure and a number of UK adventurers.

Programme highlights include Four Mums in a Boat, following working mums who thought they would row the Atlantic Ocean, Doing it Scared, with climber Paul Pritchard who returns to the Totem Pole in Tasmania to try and finish a climb which had left him partially paralised 18 years earlier.

The films are split between two different programmes, each lasting about two-and-a-half hours, with free prize giveaways at each screening. For more information and the full film programme, visit
