Banff Film Festival Tonight!

The Banff Film Festival is tonight at 7pm in the Robert B. Moore Theatre. Advance tickets are on sale at the OCC Bursar’s Office for $10 ($5 for current OCC students). Tickets will be available at the door for $12. Save $2 on door admission by bringing two or more books, DVDs or CDs per person to donate on the night of the show! Show your donation receipt at the ticket window to claim discount (does not apply to student $5 tickets).

Orange Coast College will host the "best of the best" from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival. The BMFF World Tour features an international selection of films that present a wide range of outdoor adventures and portraits, including climbing, mountain expeditions, remote cultures and the world’s last great wild places. A featured short film will be the Canadian production "Ski Bums Never Die." What does it take to be a ski bum? An unending dedication to powder skiing? The ability to do anything in your ski boots? A lifelong quest for deep snow? Find out with this unusual and inspiring band of skiers in the Kootenay region of British Columbia.
For ticket information, call (714) 432-5880. For general information, call (714) 432-0202 x21058. Proceeds will benefit the OCC Friends of the Library.
