The Banff Mountain Film Festival Stops on PEI

Tomorrow night Islanders have a chance to see a selection of world-class outdoor adventure films. The Banff Mountain Film Festival is on a world tour and is once again making a stop on PEI. This is not only a chance to see high caliber movies with compelling stories - it's also an opportunity to contribute to an event that gives back to the community. The PEI Adventure Initiative organizes the evening and the money raised supports projects in Charlottetown that create a more vibrant, sustainable community. Andrew Scott and Shannon Burt are organizing the film festival and they stopped by the Mainstreet studio.
