Films in the Banff 2024 Red Film Programme are:

Cross Countries – 8 minutes
Mountain biking legend Kilian Bron spends his time travelling the world looking for thrilling routes to ride, and this time he’s crossing North America on some of the continent’s most iconic trails. From urban bike life in New York City, to red rock formations in Moab, to dense Canadian forests, Kilian embarks on the ultimate ride – captured with his signature artistic flair.

Chronoception – 41 minutes, contains some subtitles (from French)
On the trail of nomadic peoples and the ancient Silk Roads, three skiers and boarders embark on an expedition to reach one of the most remote parts of Asia: the Tien Shan mountains, on the Kyrgyzstan-China border. Facing wild mountain landscapes, wild weather patterns and wild animals, the trio battle hostile conditions to ski stunning lines down truly immaculate peaks.

Reel Rock: DNA – 23 minutes, contains some subtitles (from French)
29-year-old climber Seb Bouin has been quietly working his way through the elite grades, culminating in his attempt to establish a long pitch out of an overhanging cave in the Verdon Gorge of France. His proposed line is so futuristic, the moves so improbable, that if Seb can put it all together it may be the most difficult route ever climbed.

Soundscape – 14 minutes
Soundscape shares the sightless experience of climbing a mountain via echo location, touch and imagination. It features Erik Weihenmayer, a fully blind adventure athlete and author, as he ascends a massive rock face deep in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Using expert camera work and emotive, novel animation, the film is a surprising and soulful adventure.

PIONEERS: TANDEM XC SKIING – 20 minutes
Two friends in search of vindication. After winning the Birkebeiner – the largest cross-country ski race in North America – Joe Dubay was disqualified for wearing the wrong bib. Now, 11 years later, Joe and his former roommate Chris return to the Birkebeiner to pioneer a new sport: tandem cross-country skiing. A story about bending the rules, this film bounces between hilarious and ‘actually really impressive.’

Sheri – 19 minutes
How one woman’s passion for innovation revolutionised the outdoor industry. Aged 50, Sheri Tingey started a company that changed the way paddle sports in the backcountry are viewed around the world. Sheri is the incredible story of her life, the hurdles she overcame to launch her company, and the brilliance and commitment she brings to her projects every day. Guaranteed to warm and inspire.

Films in the Banff 2024 Blue Film Programme are:

Mustafa Ceylon – 12 minutes, contains subtitles (from French / Turkish)
Meet the underdog of the Swiss ski scene. As a young Turkish immigrant, Mustafa was destined to play football and take over his parents’ kebab restaurant. But one day, fate put a pair of skis in his way. With buckets of natural charisma, an immense passion for skiing and an outrageous ability to take huge bails, this is the story of how Mustafa became an unexpected local hero.

No Way! (Jean Baptiste Chandelier) – 4 minutes
Watch out – there’s a paraglider about! Pro paraglider pilot and video maker Jean Baptiste Chandelier specialises in proximity flying: swooping low to the ground and over natural or man-made obstacles. In this joyful short film, ‘JB’ takes his unique low-flying, ground-skimming art combining paragliding and filmmaking to a whole new level.

Going Greenland – 23 minutes
What happens when you combine a renewable energy sailboat with an arctic ski expedition in Greenland for the first time ever? Athletes Rachael Burks and Jessica Baker put the idea to test on an inspiring expedition through wild landscapes and seascapes, as compromise and progress go hand in hand.

Subterranean – 40 minutes
Two gritty teams of hobbyist cavers are poised to break records for the longest and deepest caves in Canada. After discovering a flooded underground chamber, Katie Graham, an accountant by day, becomes obsessed with returning to the Bisaro Anima cave to push the caving depth record. At the same time, a passionate Vancouver Island team is attempting to link two tunnel systems to create the longest known cave in the country. With muddy crawls, vertical pits and underwater squeezes, these are places where no person has been before.

Reel Rock: Cenote – 9 minutes, subtitles (from Spanish)
When young papaya farmer Adolfo ‘Fito’ Trujillo started climbing, he didn’t even know that the sport had a name. The more time he spends at Mexico’s spellbinding cenotes – mystical fresh-water sinkholes on Yucatán Peninsula – the more he begins to explore the walls and rocks surrounding them.

Eternal Flame – 26 minutes, contains some subtitles (from French)
Jumping from the top of Nameless Tower in Pakistan (6,200m) is to combine one of the most beautiful climbs in the world with one of the most beautiful BASE jumps imaginable. Following in the footsteps of pioneer jumpers from the early 1990s, BASE jumpers Éric Jamet and Antoine Pecher take on this immense adventure. Beauty, power and fear all contribute to the experience.
