Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) March 11, 2012
The Banff Mountain Film Festival kicks off at 7 p.m., Wed., Mar. 21, at The Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The festival, which is created at The Banff Centre, an arts, cultural, educational institution, and conference facility located in Banff, Alberta, Canada, is the largest mountain film festival in the world. The 2012 tour features include inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films. The films in this festival cover the gamut that the planet has to offer when it comes to up-close and personal, adrenaline-infused, action-packed sports. Festival entries came from all over the world, covering exotic landscapes and remote cultures, all for the sake of producing exciting movies about the mountain world. The films being screened in the tour coming to Santa Fe come from a careful selection of some 300 films that were originally entered, then reduced down to a handful of both award-winning films and audience favorites. In conjunction with this event, Santa Fe online visitor guide SantaFe.com is offering an opportunity to register to win tickets to the Banff Mountain Film Festival on the company’s website.

About The Lensic Performing Arts Center
The Lensic is a performing arts center located in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. It opened in 1931 as a movie and vaudeville theater, operating for 69 years before closing in 2000. The nonprofit Lensic Performing Arts Center re-opened in April 2001, following an ambitious renovation funded by a capital campaign that raised $9 million. The twelve-month renovation restored the theater’s period architectural splendor and substantially increased its technical capabilities. The Lensic is now a world-class, state-of-the-art, 821-seat performance venue that has quickly emerged as one of New Mexico’s “treasures.” It is a fine example of the power of community collaboration and commitment and serves as a vibrant cultural catalyst for Santa Fe and beyond, along with being a significant resource for New Mexico. The Lensic Performing Arts Center is located at 211 W. San Francisco St., Santa Fe, NM 87501
