Be inspired, be energized, and celebrate the spirit of adventure when the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Tacoma with all new films for 2018/19!

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition and an annual presentation of short films and documentaries about mountain culture, sports, and environment. It was launched in 1976 as The Banff Festival of Mountain Films by The Banff Centre and is held every fall in Banff, Alberta.

Immediately after the annual festival wraps each November, a selection of the best films go on tour. The host organization(s) in each tour location chooses a program that reflects the interests of their community. Each community creates a unique celebration of local adventure and adventurers. The World Tour visits approximately 305 cities annually in 20 countries, reaching over 220,000 audience members. Tacoma is one of the very first stops of the tour!

Film selection occurs the afternoon of the events, and we will do our best to identify a range of activities to suit our varied local community.

NOTE: The film rating is Parental Guidance, and films may contain coarse language.

Monthly Climbers’ Social

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018


November 6, 2018 – Blackout Climbing

Climbinggames, competitions, prizes, FREE BEER!, and social time with friends (old and new), it doesn’t get much better than this!

The FIRST TUESDAY of every month, we invite you to be part of the Edgeworks community: meet other climbers, share stories, get tips from our staff, and have fun.

These events are also an opportunity for us to support the awesome work of our friends over at the American Alpine Club and Access Fund by providing discounted day passes to the members of either group. If you’re not already familiar with the work these two organizations do to keep outdoor climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment we all enjoy, we invite you check them out and get involved. 

As always, our Climbers’ Social evenings are FREE! for Edgeworks members.
$10 for AAC and Access Fund members
$18 for everyone else.

Discounted day passes available after 6pm; social and activities begin at 7pm.
Join us for the FUN!

NEXT UP:

November 6, 2018 – Blackout Climbing
Yes, we pay our utility bills! But we’re choosing to cut the lights anyway and give climbers the chance to light the walls with headlamps. Not only is it fun, it also provides a great opportunity to test and refine the skills needed if caught climbing late at night.

December 4, 2018 – Trivia Night
Test your knowledge of ALL THINGS – including, but not limited to, climbing – and earn some extra spending money just in time for the holidays! CASH prizes, free beer, and teams of 4.

FREE Beer! For those who are old enough, our monthly Climbers Socials also feature delicious pours from a local brewery. (Ciders and other non-alcoholic drinks also available.)

*Some competition routes will come down prior to the member event and the climbing area will be open to the outside side lights from the front desk and 2nd floor. To experience the full effect of the black lights, be sure to join us for the 2018 BLB Comp on Saturday, Oct 27!

Roped Climbing on the shorter walls will be closed during the event but the new/taller walls will be business as usual with normal lights and access.

FREE! for members! Regular day pass rates apply for guests of members.
