THOSE seeking a bit of high octane adventure from the safety of a theatre seat can make their way to Newtownabbey's Theatre of the Mill for the final stop in the 2018 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.
High adrenaline action films, stunning scenery and inspirational tales featuring the world’s top explorers on mind-blowing journeys in wild and remote parts of the globe are what the tour is all about. Films are chosen from the hundreds entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival, which has been taking place in the Canadian Rockies since 1975.
Highlights include Epic, where top adventurers Ben Stookesberry, Sarah McNair-Landry and Erik Boomer use kite skis and tow their white-water kayaks 1,000km over the Greenland Ice Cap to reach one of the world's northernmost rivers.
Each screening offers a real sense of community, bringing together outdoor enthusiasts who are into all sorts of outdoor pursuits, and there are free prize giveaways at every event too.
