As part of the upcoming national tour, the Banff Mountain Film Festival will be presenting the Radical Reels Tour at the Capri Theatre in mid-November for a night of extreme entertainment and fun.
From 7pm until 10pm the Radical Reels team will show eight of the most extreme short films highlighting radical and daredevil sports, and showing daring footage of some of the most accomplished climbers, paddlers, base jumpers, skiers, snowboarders and mountain-bike riders alive today.
The advent of the go-pro camera has provided opportunities to film many of these extreme sports like never before. Each action-packed short film has been hand-picked from more than 300 entries at the most recent Banff Mountain Festival (the largest and most prestigious mountain-adventure, culture and exploration festival in the world).
This year's films include skiers tackling the big slopes of Norway, mountain biking in New Zealand, base jumping in to a cave, the best female freestyle skiers, climbing in California, paragliding in the Pyrenees, rockclimbing in the UK and much more.
The Capri Theatre is one of Adelaide's oldest theatres having been built in 1941. The Capri is an independent not-for-profit cinema run by a network of generous volunteers who rely on charity fundraising movie nights and special events like this to provide a much needed boost to their bank account so that they can maintain the heritage listed cinema.
The Radical Reels Tour is visiting all major capital cities during November, as well as some regional cities. Tickets may be purchased at the door or purchased online prior to the event. Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for children. Food and drink (including alcohol) will be available for sale, however if you are looking for something more substantial to eat you may want to try one of the many food outlets on Goodwood Road.
