Leavenworth Hosts Banff Mountain Film Festival

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is taking this year's films on the road as they do each year and this year we are excited to have them come to Leavenworth.

We're so excited that we told the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club who is hosting the films that we would love to be the title sponsor. So for the inaugural showings here in Leavenworth, we at Icicle Creek Homes (Allyson and Geordie) are the title sponsor.

What is the Banff Mountain Film Festival?

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition featuring the world’s best footage on mountain subjects. The festival began in 1976 and is held annually on the first weekend in November in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The year 2010 marks the 35th anniversary of the festival.

 

What is the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour?

Immediately after the festival in November, a selection of the best films entered in the festival goes on tour.  The world tour spans the globe reaching over 200,000 audience members in 30 countries and 360 locations, with over 550 screenings.  Many of the tour screenings benefit an outdoor program, community cause, or a nonprofit organization like the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club.

 

What is the Banff Mountain Film Festival Competition?

In 2009, 277 films from approximately 28 countries were entered into the competition. The films range from productions created by first-time filmmakers to professional crews working with companies like the BBC and National Geographic. A pre-screening committee selects approximately 60 finalists for the festival.  During the festival, the international film festival jury chooses the best films from these finalists and awards prizes in 10 categories.

As “west siders” looking for a getaway near Leavenworth, Geordie provided insight … his knowledge of design features important in a “snowy winter wonderland” was appreciated. Thanks Geordie!

Geordie made this somewhat complicated transition easier for us…going above and beyond to help us work through issues that came up during the sale of our parents home. We appreciated his knowledge, attentiveness to details and his willing spirit.
Our family is grateful for Geordie!

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!
