Banff Film Festival Returns to Immaculata Friday and Saturday

The festival is billed as an exploration of 'the world's last great wild places.'

Immaculata University will once again host the Banff International Film Festival, presented through Philadelphia Rock Gym. 

This weekend's show is a selection of the films featured at the Banff Film Festival, which took place in Canada last October. The films feature "climbing, mountain expeditions, remote cultures, and the world’s last great wild places," according to the festival website.

The shows will take place Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, in the school's Alumnae Hall. Tickets are available online for $16.50 or $19 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the films begin at 7:30 p.m.
