Tickets On Sale for Best of 37th Annual Banff Mountain Film Festival at UCSB

Tickets are on sale now for the Best of the 37th Annual Banff Mountain Film Festival, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures.

The popular festival will take place at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27-28 at the Arlington Theatre, 1317 State St. in Santa Barbara.

A Santa Barbara institution, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is a perennial A&L fan favorite. Featuring the world’s best films and videos on mountain subjects, the tour awes viewers with thrills and grandeur captured in exotic locations the world over.

The show’s wide variety of film subjects — from extreme sports to mountain culture and environment — will amaze audiences. An entirely different program screens each evening.

With eight films on Wednesday and seven films on Thursday, this year’s highlights range from risky, adrenaline-filled adventures trekking across vast snow and ice fields in Antarctica and down Class 5 white-water rapids in New Zealand to the first-ever downhill ski racing competition in Afghanistan to a spunky dog who shreds on the bike trails and an inspiring team of amputee climbers who have a go at El Capitan.

Tickets for each night of the Best of the 37th Annual Banff Mountain Film Festival are $14 for the general public and $11 for UCSB students with current student ID and youths age 18 or younger. (An Arlington facility fee will be added to each ticket price.)

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
