A popular north-east festival is underway in unusual fashion but with its traditional mix of stunning films and behind the scenes access.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival UK and Ireland Tour has launched a virtual film festival for audiences to watch from home throughout September and October.
Tour director Nell Teasdale is “thrilled” to be taking the event forward in what she said should be an “exciting new format”.
She said: “As well as the epic films from the 2020 Banff tour, Backyard Theatre viewers will have access to exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the tour and top adventure film-makers.
“Our legendary prize draw for goodies from leading outdoor brands will happen live on the night, and there will be lots of bonus content for the audience to explore in our virtual foyer too.”
The Backyard Theatre adventure film evenings feature two different programmes of films.
The films start at 7.30pm but audiences can explore the virtual foyer from 6.30pm, where they can download the tour magazine and enter the prize draw.
Ms Teasdale added: “While we can’t join adventure-lovers live at theatres, we are really excited to be presenting our first ever virtual tour.”
“So grab the popcorn, make a brew and get your friends watching at the same time.
“We can’t wait to ‘virtually’ see you for a night of inspiration!”
