The 2013 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival opens this weekend in Alberta, Canada. From October 26 through November 3, more than 80 adventure films will be showcased from around the world.
Banff crowds will be treated to a preview screening of The Last Great Climb, which captures the story of a group of climbers attempting a new route on Antarctica's Ulvetanna Peak. Also appearing next week will be a special 3D screening of the New Zealand film Beyond the Edge, a depiction of a 1953 summit bid on Everest.
In November, the festival will leave the Banff Centre for an extensive tour around the world. Outside will be at Banff next week, so look out for updates.
