Radical Reels film fest tour & fundraiser for Pisgah Area SORBA, Sept. 8

The best high adrenaline films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival are coming to Asheville, NC on September 8, 2014.

Epic big mountain ski and snowboard descents, nail-biting speed climbing, stomach turning kayaking drops – and you haven’t even seen the steepest and gnarliest lines yet!  The Radical Reels Tour, now in its tenth year, continues to push boundaries with the best action sports films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Experience more than half a dozen wild adrenaline-pumping sports as seen through the eyes of some of today’s top athletes. Join the party for a good cause. Profits of the presentation will go to Pisgah Area SORBA (local mountain bike organization). See you there, adventure film lovers!
