The Banff Mountain Film Festival, one of the most prestigious mountain festivals in the world, is coming to Rochester Institute of Technology. The festival will take place at 7 p.m., Feb. 21-22, in the Student Alumni Union’s Ingle Auditorium.

This year’s tour features a collection of inspiring and thought-provoking action, environmental and adventure mountain films. It features award-winning films and audience favorites from the approximately 300 films that were entered in the annual festival.

“The 2008/2009 world tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world,” says Tom Connelly, the coordinator of RIT’s Interactive Adventures.

Tickets are $10 students, $11 for faculty, staff and alumni and $12 for the general public and can be purchased by calling the Gordon Field House and Activities Center box office at (585) 475-4121. There is a $1 savings for those who buy tickets for both nights at the same time.
