Banff Mountain Film Festival Inverness – a great night. Great motivation on the final film about and 82 year old to life – "No Problem a great Mantra"

Last night I went to the Banff Mountain Film Festival at Eden Court Inverness. Banff in Canada is a place I know well from my many visits in the 80’s, 90, and onwards ice climbing. What a country Canada is and it’s amazing a small town like Banff has such a great Film and book festival.

As always the films were inspiring I enjoyed every one a few brought laughter some tears as well. It was so well done to a packed Eden Court in Inverness and just what I needed. Just watching all those great people do amazing things was a night of superb entertainment. It was a mixture of old and young having adventures in the mountains the river, the Artic, Mountain Biking, running and some crazy animations. I loved it.

I was taken by two pals thanks to Debbie and Kim my chaperones. It was a great night and once my Grandkids are a bit older they will love it and hopefully be motivated to love these wild places and the characters that make them special.

It’s good to see how things are changing and that folk really do love the planet and a trying to make it a better environment before it’s too late.

This is the introduction to last nights show.

I really loved it met lots of old pals and though I coughed through it I loved it. Sorry.

If the Mountain Festival is near you go and see it be inspired. The final short film was about an incredible Frenchman in the USA aged 82 who attitude to whatever life threw at him health wise and other problems with ageing. His Mantra was “No Problem”
