    Banff Film Fest World Tour comes to the Garde

    Oh, the things people will do for an adrenaline rush!

    A still from “Reel Rock: Bridge Boys,” playing at the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour at the Garde Arts Center Saturday.

    Like freeskiing, in which athletes do alpine skiing but also throw in tricks and jumps. (Because alpine skiing isn’t already hair-raising enough.)

    And like crack climbing, where a climber follows a crack in the rock.

    If that sounds terribly exciting but you’d prefer to live vicariously, have we got the event for you: The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour, which plays the Garde Arts Center on Saturday.

    It showcases a collection of movies about daring exploits but also about environmentalism. Bring your sense of adventure with you.

    Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour, 7 p.m. Saturday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; $20-$35; gardearts.org.
