The Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour will stop off at University of East Anglia on April 21. The UEA's Lecture Theatre One will play host to an evening of adventure films. Among them is the film Four Mums In A Boat, about four mums rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, and the film Doing It Scared, about climber Paul Pritchard, who was left partially paralysed following an accident, returning to the Totem Pole in Tasmania to find out if he has recovered enough to finish the climb.

Tour director Nell Teasdale said: 'The Banff Tour is more than a series of exhilarating film nights. Each screening offers a real sense of community, bringing together people with a wide range of outdoor passions. And we guarantee that viewers will leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures too.'

The short films have been selected from hundreds of films entered into the Banff Mountain Film Festival held every year in the Canadian Rockies.
