Banff Film Festival
Last night was the St.John's leg of the Banff Film Festival World Tour.
I think we have been attending for at least the last ten years.
It is always a great night.
A really unique film featured last night was Finding Farley - basically an extraordinary canoe trip taken on by a couple and their two year old son. Fantastic images and great commentary. Check out www.findingfarley.ca
A four person climbing trip to Pakistan was captured in Azazael. Uniwue shots and a great experience of four friends.
A trailer of the Signatures film can be found on You Tube, below.
This was a beautifully crafted film shot in Japan in incredible powder snow.
I noticed the Three Cups of Tea foundation highlighted in the program, it seemed as a sponsor. I had described the book as a must read in a post sometime ago and it is still an important and valuable resource. It highlights how important communication and understanding is in the process of making peace. This book should be required reading for anyone in the armed forces and personnel working in conflict zones around the world.
