Cape Union Mart brings the Banff Film Festival to South Africa for the seventh year running.
This years lineup features two climbing films, the first being ‘Obe and Ashima‘ (Ashima spent time in Rocklands this year and flashed up to 8a!). The other climbing movie is ‘Towers of Ennedi‘ which I had not seen before. It features Veteran climber Mark Synnott, Alex Honnold and James Pearson exploring the the Ennedi Desert of Chad. Breathtakingly lovely spires, towers, and rock formations.
And my overall favourite was C.A.R.C.A (One man’s quest to revolutionize the world of animal avalanche rescue).
Expect to also see the usual base jumping, alpine skiing, white water kayaking, dirt bike jumping, high-lining and general craziness!
Banff will be screened at five Ster-Kinekor cinemas across the country:
Cape Town: Cavendish Square & Tygervalley Centre
Johannesburg: Sandton City
Pretoria: Brooklyn Mall
Durban: Gateway Centre (one screening only on 1 November)
Tickets always sell out fast, so be sure to book now!
