Every year, the theater goes dark, familiar theme music begins and fervent followers of the Banff Mountain Film Festival feel the hair on their arms rise. This year, two dozen films ranging from three-minutes to an hour long will set the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts across the Treasure Valley beating faster.

The festival includes three nights of films that feature wing suits, surfing, climbing, getting stuck in small cracks, skiing, running, flipping through the air with a parachute, slacklining, mountain biking on cliff sides the width of a tire, exotic landscapes, kayaking, exploring, repelling, cave searching and cairn building.

When the lights come back up, the audience will feel energized, restless and ready to pull on their parkas to see what they're truly capable of.
