The Banff Mountain Film Festival is bringing thrilling new adventure films to Theatr Brycheiniog on Wednesday, 13 March and Friday, 4 October.

With extreme skiing, mountain biking, climbing and more, the festival features two new collections of gripping action films from remote regions of the globe.

Tour director Nell Teasdale said: “Get ready for an inspirational night of adventure from the wildest corners of the planet!

“With intrepid athletes, spectacular cinematography and a big dose of adrenaline, the Banff Mountain Film Festival stars the best new films from the world’s top adventure filmmakers. Plus, we guarantee you’ll be inspired to have an adventure of your own as well.”

Banff tour films are chosen from hundreds of entries into the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, which is held every November in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Now in its fifteenth year, the UK and Ireland tour will visit more than 50 locations this year.

Some of the film highlights include: Chronoception - An expedition along the ancient Silk Road into one of the least explored regions of Asia: the Tien Shan mountains, on the Kyrgyzstan-China border. Three skiers and snowboarders follow in the footsteps of Kyrgyzstan’s nomadic people, to find themselves thrown into a world where time and space appear to stand still.

Another one of the films, Cross Countries, includes French mountain biking legend Kilian Bron, who spends his time travelling the world looking for thrilling routes to ride, and this time he’s crossing North America on some of the continent’s most iconic trails. From urban bike life in New York City, to red rock formations in Moab, to dense Canadian forests, Kilian embarks on the ultimate ride.

Going Greenland will also feature on the tour - How do we follow our dreams while living in a way that is more in harmony with our environment? Athletes Rachael Burks and Jessica Baker attempt to find out, by combining a renewable energy sailboat with an arctic ski expedition in Greenland. The result is an inspiring and formidable voyage, with compromise and progress going hand in hand on an experimental journey.
