We were fortunate enough to have the privilege of attending Roanoke Outside's Banff Mountain Film Festival and Get Outside Expo that was held in Roanoke, VA yesterday on September 10th, 2014. Mountain State Overland was represented by Jason and myself (Jamie) at the Expo where we informed the public about our upcoming episode # 7 which will be filmed through the coal fields of southern WV and Kentucky. Then after the expo concluded we were able to enjoy the Banff Film Festival.
"Faster, steeper, higher, deeper! The most outrageous mountain sport films from the 38th annual Banff Mountain Film Festival will thrill and inspire you with big-screen adventures when RADICAL REELS TOUR, presented by National Geographic, comes to Roanoke on September 10, 2014."
"Bike tough trails, paddle wild waters, and ski steep slopes. The Radical Reels Tour runs every spring & winter and spans North America bringing a variety of mountain sport films to a wide range of viewers from hard-core outdoor adventurers to weekend warriors. Grab your seats and hang on as we present the world’s best action films on skiing, boarding, climbing, biking, kayaking and more – all brought to life on the big screen."
If you live in the Roanoke, VA area I highly recommend coming to this next year it is a great experience. You can meet local outdoor vendors and see some of the coolest adventure films that I have ever seen. It's worth the trip!
