Movies to benefit conservation

The Piedmont Land Conservancy in Greensboro and the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation in Winston-Salem will benefit from the Triad screening of a traveling tour of adventure films.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour stops at the Salem College Fine Arts Center in Winston-Salem April 1, showing eight films with running times ranging from four to 52 minutes.

The films have been selected from the 26th annual festival in Alberta, Canada, which this year attracted 8,000 people and featured 250 films from 27 countries.

Films to be shown in the Triad focus on sailing, rock-climbing, snowboarding, kayaking, skiing and unicycling.

A capacity crowd would generate up to $5,000 for the two conservation groups, says Debra Perret, development director for the Piedmont Land Conservancy, which serves nine counties in the region.
