On the opening weekend of the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival at the Banff Centre (Oct 29, 30, 2016) two films with a Canadian First Nations focus were shown.
Koneline: our land beautiful (Canada, 2015, 96 min). Director: Nettie Wild. Producer: Betsy Carson. Production Company: Canada Wild Productions.
Koneline is a cinematic celebration of northwestern British Columbia set in the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation. It captures the beauty of the land, examines the impacts of modernization, and explores the competing interests of miners, big game hunters, and First Nations communities.
Shift (Canada, 2016, 20 min) Director and Producer: Kelly Milner. Production Company: Shot in the Dark Productions.
Shift won the People's Choice Award and will be included in the 2017 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. It introduces a group of young Tagish First Nations youth who had a dream that led them to construct nearly 100 km of world-class biking trails on Montana Mountain, near Carcross, YT. Along the way they have made their community a destination for international mountain biking enthusiasts, furthered local economic development initiatives, and transformed their own lives.
