Exhilarating films featuring mountains around the world and the people who find adventure on them will return to Mission this year on Dec. 2 and 3.

The Best of the Banff Mountain Film Festival will make its annual stop at the Clarke Theatre at 7 p.m. on each night. Tickets are $16 per night or $28 for two nights.
