Gripped is at the 2014 Banff Mountain Film Festival

The world’s best mountain films, books, and speakers take the spotlight for nine days each fall in Banff. Experience the adventure of climbing, mountain expeditions, remote cultures, and the world’s last great wild places – all brought to life at The Banff Centre.

Gripped will be at the festival, located in the Laszlo Funtek Studio 224, which is part of the Margaret Greenham Theatre and can be reached from the Eric Harvie Theatre, see the map below.

Gripped editor Brandon Pullan will be interviewing David Lama, Ed Douglas, Steve Swenson, Hazel Findlay, Cedar Wright, Jeff Lowe and many others on Basecamp Radio and for Gripped Magazine. If you have any questions, message Pullan on Gripped’s Facebook.
