The Banff Film Festival Comes to Lenox

Most film festivals last a weekend and then they’re over. The organizers of the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Canada, which is devoted to movies about outdoor sports and adventure travel, take a broader view and send their festival on the road for six months, and this weekend it arrives at Lenox Memorial Middle and High School.  Sponsored by the Arcadian Shop, the outdoors shop in Lenox, the festival includes films on everything from extreme snowboarding to documentaries on indigenous mountain peoples. Ticket sales ($10/$15) benefit the Lenox Educational Enrichment Foundation, and the festival also provides an opportunity for the LMMHS Crew to do some fundraising by running the “Crew Cafe,” which will serve supper and dessert in the school’s cafeteria.
