I worked the Banff Mtn Film Festival Tour (http://www.banffmountainfestivals.ca/tour/) stop here in atlanta tonight, didn't know what the event was untill we started loading it in, but it was pretty cool....
I'm one of those who can't sit through slideshows, but this was several films/documentaries of various lengths on various 'outdoor' sports.... none that I saw were specifically about hiking, but there was a good bit of hiking in it...

The one here in Atl was sponsored by REI, so there was also a gear giveaway... looks like not all stops are sponsored by rei

If you have a chance, i think its worth it to check out, every stop has a different set of videos.

That looks pretty awesome. I might actually try to catch this in Nashville next week. Thanks for letting us know about it.

I actually went to something similar in Chattanooga a couple weeks ago: http://www.mountainfilm.org/tour/ A couple of the films on the list are even the same. I highly recommend it. It was a blast!

I got tickets to the showing in Pittsburgh April 9. No idea what to expect, but $15 for tickets isn't that bad.
