With less than one week until the lights go down and the curtain goes up, the Teck Rossland Mountain Film Festival program is confirmed and promises an exciting variety of local and international films from Nov. 13-17.

This annual celebration of film and mountain culture in Rossland offers a slew of events for festival-goers, including five days of premieres, family programming and live music.

The Festival kicks off on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at the Red Room Lounge in the Prestige Mountain Resort with Michael Mankowski’s Left For Dead: The Legend of Wild Bill.

Thursdays events include two films at the Flying Steamshovel. Not Bad will show at 9 p.m. followed by local filmmaker Andre Nutini’s The Lost.

The Teck Mountain Gala and Silent Art Auction takes place on Friday, Nov. 15, with the musical stylings of Brad Mackay. Proceeds from this year’s art auction will go to the Rossland Food Bank.

Friday’s showcase films at the Flying Steamshovel kick off at 7 p.m., followed by a live performance at 10:30 p.m. from local favourites John Lee’s Hooker.

Saturday, Nov. 16 programming includes the return of the popular REEL Youth Film Festival from noon-2:30 p.m., followed by the family matinee at 3 p.m.

The family matinee features Not Bad followed by Crossing the Ice, the winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2012 Banff Film Festival. Both events take place at the Miner’s Union Hall.

On Saturday, festival goers can also take in Lunch and Mountain Films at the Flying Steamshovel at 1 p.m.

Saturday’s Nelson and District Credit Union Mountain Film Party kicks off at 7 p.m., with lively entertainment provided by the Funk Hunters. Tickets are $25.
