Outdoor Essentials will be bringing the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to the Roi Theatre on Sept. 29.

The festival is the largest mountain festivals in the world and this tour comes after the main event that is held in Banff each fall.

In Smithers, money raised from the showings will go towards the B.V. Search and Rescue and the Migwani Children Dormetory Project in Kenya, Africa.

The films that will be shown have been chosen from a bank of 260 that were entered into the festival.

In all the tour is expected to hit 350 communities in 32 countries.

This is the 11th year that Outdoor Essentials have hosted the show which lasts two-and-a-half hours.

There will be draws for prizes between the first and second half of the screenings.

Doors open at 5:45 p.m. for ticket sales and for people who have pre-purchased. Tickets are $13 for adults and $9 for children 14-years-and-younger.
