Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour 2014

Mix the world’s most beautiful wild places, adventurous athletes and daring filmmakers and you get the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour 2014. The program includes newly selected short films that capture world-class athletes performing incredible stunts on skis, mountain bikes and hang gliders and in kayaks. We’re talking base-jumping off towering mountains, taking a kayak down a waterfall four stories high and surfing in the open ocean. As if the terrain isn’t rough enough, the extreme weather conditions are harrowing. Along the way, the athletes and filmmakers meet a host of local residents and wild animals.

7:25 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse — Vintage Park, 114 Vintage Park. For information, call 713-715-4707 or visit drafthouse.com. $20.
