Banff Film Festival comes to Conn College

Published February 20. 2014 4:00AM
A scene from the German film "Loslassen," which translates (brace yourself) as "Let Go."

Delve into deep-slot canyons and waterfalls that haven't been explored before. Or follow a group of wingsuit pilots who aim to fly through Heaven's Gate, an archway carved out of Tianmen Mountain in China. Or go along with two bicyclists pedalling through the Austrian Alps.

The best part: You can do it all while sitting down.

There's nothing like vicarious thrills, and the Banff Film Festival continues to offer just that. A series of Banff movies will be screened Sunday at Connecticut College.

It's part of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, which go to 32 countries each - that means 635 screenings and more than 235,000 viewers.
