Over the past six years, e Best of the Fest Tour - Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival has become a cornerstone event for Chilliwack’s outdoor community. It captures the essence of what drives people to head into the backcountry – whether hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, or any other sport – and as the event’s curator, city councillor and owner of Mt. Waddington’s Outdoors, Sam Waddington, highlights, VIMFF’s Best of the Fest Tour offers a route into the wilderness for everyone. “e Festival’s offerings in Chilliwack provides an opportunity for those who are stoked on the outdoors, at all levels, to get together under one roof and feel the energy of a community in motion,” Sam says. “Watching people on the big screen push the envelope of what is possible in the outdoors, and to truly see someone who embodies the spirit of adventure, is a really special thing. I think anyone who has been to these events has felt this and knows how inspiring they can be!” Sam uses his deep knowledge of the outdoors and passion for promoting the opportunities available in Chilliwack to create an event that, as well as showcasing spectacular films, stories and achievements, offers the audience a taste of what they themselves could experience. “I take a lot of pride in making sure that the films reflect the realities and aspirations of Chilliwack, and what people are up to here... and sometimes perhaps what I think they should be getting up to! Our community is home to so much potential, and so much variety in the outdoor activities that are available. For me that is key to my approach to selecting films for our audience. I try where ever possible to throw in mountain biking films, paragliding films, films on rock climbing and whitewater paddling, as it’s all possible here.” e Best of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 24, 2018 at 7:30pm.
