Montana Plays Host to BANFF Mountain Film Festival Tour

Montana is ready to play host to the BANFF Mountain Film Tour once again.

The festival began in Great Falls earlier this month and will now head to Kalispell on November 12 and 13th.

Sponsored by the Flathead Nordic Backcountry Patrol, the tour will stop in at Flathead High school to screen this years films.

The tour consists of a selection of the films screened at the BANFF Mountain Film Festival that are selected specially for each stop the tour makes. From about 25 films licensed from the festival, the organizers work with the local sponsors to pick films that they believer will be well-received by the audience in their communities.

Screening the films is the largest fundraiser for the locally-based ski patrol, generating the funds for them to purchase search-and-rescue equipment and provide training to new members.

The series will screen at Flathead High School at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the Flathead High School auditorium. Tickets are $14 and may be purchased at local vendors in the Flathead area. You can find a list of those retailers and more info about the festival at the BANFF Festival homepage.
