Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour 2017
Hosted by Cape Union Mart, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour shares "stories of remote journeys, ground-breaking expeditions, and cutting-edge adventures told through the eyes of adventurers, authors, photographers, and filmmakers from around the globe".
South African audiences will also be treated to the screening of an additional five-minute film, which is the winning submission from the Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge that encourages SA filmmakers and adventurers to capture and celebrate local outdoor culture.

Caitlin Doney, PR Coordinator at Cape Union Mart says “The winning submission from this year’s Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge is One Fly At A Time by promising filmmaker Dewald Brand. This film celebrates a South African who is passionate about capturing the beautiful landscapes, crystal clear streams and rivers that this hobby leads him to.”
Dewald Brand (32), this year’s winner, says “I decided to enter because I’d recently done my first real hiking trip in Norway. It made me fall in love with the outdoors even more than before, especially combined with filming. I made a film of that Norwegian trip and while scouring online to find hiking film festivals, I found the Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge and decided to enter.”
The introduction to the film was shot at the Pescatarian Society in Cape Town and the outdoor scenes were filmed in the Du Toit’s Kloof region. Brand adds that the highlight of filming was “spending time outdoors in Mother Nature with excellent company – the perfect combination”.
One Fly At A Time will be showing in conjunction with the 2017 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, screened at Ster-Kinekor on the following dates:
