AN extraordinary collection of short films is being shown at the Regent Centre in Christchurch.

Follow the expeditions of some of today's most incredible adventurers, see amazing footage of adrenaline packed action sports, and be inspired by thought-provoking pieces shot from the far flung corners of the globe at the Banff Mountain Film Festival.

The event returns to the venue with a blue programme of films on Saturday, February 17, and will be followed by a red programme, with a selection of different films, later in the year, on Tuesday, May 1.

Organisers hope both events will ignite cinema-goers' passion for adventure, action and travel, and are offering a discount when both evenings are booked.

Tickets are priced £13.50, concessions £11.50, with a saver discount price of £23 for both events.

Free prize giveaways are being held in the run up to the event - visit for more details.
