HI-TEC, the global Sports and Outdoor footwear brand, is

proud to announce its commitment to sponsor the UK tour of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, the most important adventure film festival in the world.

Since the festival began in Canada thirty three years ago, it now visits 280 communities in 30 different countries worldwide and attracts many sold-out audiences annually.
The immense size of the Tour underlines the global popularity of mountain culture and activities.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is touring the UK in January and February 2010 for the first time, with nine events planned across the country. It is one of the world’s most inspiring collections of action, environmental and adventure mountain films.

Even though the Banff Mountain Film Festival lands for the first time in the UK, HI-TEC has been the Main Sponsor of the event for 9 consecutive years in Argentina and South Africa. Exhilarating and thought provoking; the 2010 World Tour is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts and those with a spirit of adventure. Each festival event is much more than a film night - it is a social evening where outdoor adventure lovers of all kinds can come together, have a drink and enjoy a selection of inspiring short films.

UK World Tour dates are as follows:

29 January - Mitchell Theatre, Glasgow

3 & 4 February - Union Chapel, Islington, London

6 February - Theatre By The Lake, Keswick

11 February - Komedia Club, Brighton

13 February - Dancehouse Theatre, Manchester

18 & 21 February - Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds

20 February - Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan

The Banff World Tour will appeal to all sorts of audiences - from those who love to spend their days climbing cliff faces to those who throw themselves down a mountain with a parachute or skis, to those who are happy to enjoy these activities from the safety of their armchairs.
