Filmmakers, authors, artists, and athletes entrust us with their creative works and feats of passion year after year. We are honoured by this, and extremely grateful! Still, every year, we’re repeatedly asked, “Where are the women?” Clearly many of you are missing women’s stories, missing role models for yourselves and your daughters, missing the female perspective. The stories exist. That, we know. Take just the last couple of years of live presentations here in Banff: Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Dervla Murphy, Lynsey Dyer, Pat Deavoll, Edurne Pasaban, Sarah McNair-Landry, and Maria Coffey have all graced our stages and shared their adventures. This year we welcome adventurer, Cecilie Skog and big wall climber, Sílvia Vidal. Our Opening Night Film, The Summit, features Skog – who will be in attendance along with director, Nick Ryan.

2013 also sees Tim Cope, who won the 2011 People’s Choice award for this film On the Trail of Genghis Khan, return with his finished book of the same journey. Jonesy and Aleksander Gamme of the 2012 triple-award-winning film, Crossing the Ice, will romp on stage together for the first time ever. Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker make their first Canadian appearance following 3 the success of the short film, Wide Boyz (Best Short Mountain Film 2012). And how better to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Everest than in stunning 3D with Canadian director, Leanne Pooley’s Beyond the Edge; a conversation with environmentalist and former Himalayan climber, Apa Sherpa; presentation and exhibition comprised of George Lowe’s remarkable photographs as presented by author Huw Lewis-Jones; and 2013 Voice of Adventure Tom Hornbein, to help mark the 50th anniversary of the first American ascent of Everest. I urge you to join us in supporting all artists and adventurers in their creative ventures through reputable online funding platforms such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Help breathe life into the stories you’d like to see so the inspiration continues!

Our remarkable team here at The Banff Centre never ceases to astound me. On their behalf, I thank all the storytellers for sharing. I thank our supporters, partners, and volunteers. And I thank you, our audience. The Festival’s celebration of mountain culture and mountain life reflects who we are as a community. Our reverence for the mountains inspires our day-to-day life and our vision for the future. And, each year through the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, we are able to share the joy that is Banff with you – and with thousands of others around the globe through our World Tour.

Sponsored by RealD Sixty years ago humans had not yet set foot on the moon. The effects of high altitude were as unknown as outer space and the gear was far from what we now consider “technical”. What was it like to climb Everest under those physical and mental conditions? Through archival footage, and using audio recordings with expedition members as narration, the British expedition of the first ascent of Everest in 1953 is recreated and presented in 3D. Beyond the Edge is such a seamless experience that we transcend our modern knowledge and context, allowing us to understand the unknowns of Everest as 3d Hillary and Norgay once GlASSeS did, and appreciate the ProVided! true significance of their accomplishment.

Are rock stars Leo Houlding, Sean “Stanley” Leary, and Jason Pickles up to their old tricks again? Maybe so, but they’ve brought along a few new friends and hopes of a bold new line on a remote spire in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. They’re going big again – the majestic unclimbed Ulvetanna Peak is their goal this time. But they’re in the middle of nowhere, miserably cold, and a bit delirious. Hopefully it’s nothing a little adrenaline can’t cure.

For an international expedition of top climbers wanting to free one of the hardest aid routes on Baffin lsland, getting to the climb isn’t the problem, it’s the gettingback-to-civilization part that has them a bit worried.

wide Boyz: The Inside Story

A Fine Line

Off-width crack climbing: it’s tough, painful, and bloody. After a ruthless two-year training regime, England’s Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall completed the first free ascent of the most difficult off-width crack known, the 50-metre Century Crack (5.14b) in Utah. Featured in the 2012 Festival’s award-winning short film Wide Boyz, Whittaker and Randall share the whole story of their methods of madness. A screening of the feature-length film Wide Boyz and A Fine Line follow the presentation.

Maidentrip (2013, uSA, 82 min) director: Jillian Schlesinger Producer: emily McAllister, Jillian Schlesinger

Fourteen-year-old Laura Dekker sets out on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, she finds herself far from land, family, and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom and adventure. Dekker’s brave and defiant voice is amplified through a mix of her own video and voice recordings at sea – and intimate vérité footage from her remarkable journey.

Running in the wilds of Namibia can be primal – as utterly simple and beautiful as it is daunting and irrational.

Helicopter Rescuer in the Himalayas (2013, Switzerland, 94 min) n. AMeriCAn PreMiere director and Producer: Frank Senn, hari Thapa Producer: Frank Senn Production Company: SrF, ServusTV

Swiss-Nepalese alliances of filmmakers and pilots give a riveting account of one of the last adventures in aviation – putting helicopter rescue into the hands of local Himalayans. Refreshingly matter-of-fact, the teams take us on high altitude training runs that test the limits of the possible and raise ethical questions around bringing helicopters to lands where bucket-list endeavors clash with the basics of remote living.

Riding solo across Kyrgyzstan’s back roads on his mountain bike, stopping to climb as many peaks as possible – that’s the plan. Does the journey come to a close where the road unexpectedly ends or does his will urge him on further?

Into the Mind (2013, Canada, 71 min) director: dave Mossop*, eric Crosland*, JP Auclair Producer: Malcolm Sangster*, eric Crosland Production Company: Sherpa Cinema

Fabulous imagery and outstanding cinematography blur the lines between dreamstate and reality to immerse us in the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. The consequences are extreme. Here, outcome is determined by grand experience as the story draws us in deeper – and as the boundary between reality and imagination disappears.

suMMit OF ExCEllEnCE award Presented by the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival at The Banff Centre since 1987, and sponsored by Canadian Mountain Holidays the annual Summit of Excellence Award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to mountain life in the Canadian Rockies. The Award is presented in memory of Calgary climber Bill March. There aren’t many people who venture into the mountains in Western Canada without first taking a look at the Handbook of the Canadian Rockies. Consistently updated through the years and known as “the Bible” for Canadian mountain enthusiasts, it logs every plant, animal, and rock type found in the region, written for both weekend hikers and serious mountaineers. The Handbook’s author, BEN GADD, a teacher, naturalist, guide, and award-winning author, will receive the 2013 Summit of Excellence Award on Sunday, November 3, during the awards presentation in the Eric Harvie Theatre. Mountaineer Barry Blanchard, one of those who nominated Gadd for the award, said “I can think of no other person who can tell me what is going on 10,000 feet below me, as well as 10,000 feet above.” As part of the Summit of Excellence award committee, Bernadette McDonald added, “Ben Gadd’s knowledge of natural history in the Canadian Rockies, and the way in which he shares that knowledge, is a huge contribution to the people who live here and to tens of thousands of those who visit the area.”

In addition to researching and writing the groundbreaking Handbook of the Canadian Rockies, Gadd has written nine other books including the best-selling novel Raven’s End, and he’s received three Banff Mountain Book Competition awards for his work. With a degree in earth science, Gadd has pursued a career mainly in natural history, including working for Parks Canada as a naturalist. He has taught writing at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and Grant MacEwan University, and for nearly 30 years has worked as a freelance interpretive guide – one of only eight master guides in Canada’s professional Interpretive Guides Association – and as a writer and sought-after lecturer on Rockies topics. Gadd supports various conservation groups in promoting wilderness protection.
