Every adrenalin seeking junkie in Utah Valley showed up for this years film festival.  The hallway upstairs in the Student Center was lined with people waiting to get in. Local and national sponsors showed up and had every thing from backpacks and sleeping bags to head lamps and carabineers out for people to try out. Posters of famous rock climbers and mountain bikers were given out for free.

During the film festival people are encouraged to yell and shout during the films. Which makes the Banff Film Festival not only fun to watch but fun to attend.
