The Boise Nordic Foundation is bringing the Banff Mountain Film Festival to the Egyptian Theatre, with more than 20 films from all over the world.
The films, which are being shown over three nights, are taken from approximately 350 entered in the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival and feature kayaking, skiing, rock climbing, other adventures and environmental films.
The nonprofit Nordic foundation is hosting the festival for the 18th year, and proceeds from the event will benefit Nordic skiing at Bogus Basin and the Treasure Valley.
Films start each night at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the Egyptian Theatre box office, 700 W. Main St., and online at egyptiantheatre.net, or call 387-1273.
Tickets bought in advance are $17 for adults, $13 for students and seniors, and a three-day festival pass is $45.
