Each year, the Banff Mountain Film Festival presents the most creative and inspiring examples of outdoor adventure filmmaking from around the world. You’ll see award-winning selections from the fall 2014 festival, focusing on such activities as BASE jumping, skiing, mountain biking, climbing, snowboarding, and more. We’re screening a second day of films again this year, but that won’t prevent this perennial favorite from selling out early. Act fast and grab your tickets during the member presale.

The often dreamlike Butter on the Latch follows two fairly unstable women-longtime friends-who reunite at a Balkan folk music camp in northern California. Rifts in the friendship appear as one of the women becomes attracted to another man in camp. Emphasizing elliptical moments of heightened emotion over conventional storytelling, Decker displays a highly poetic approach to filmmaking that is both original and liberating. (70 mins., DCP)
MARCH 27, 2015 – APRIL 12, 2015
$15.00 – $17.00
Maggie (“The Cat”) and her husband Brick Pollitt (an aging football hero) have a turbulent relationship. We find them visiting with Brick’s family at Big Daddy’s estate. Big Daddy has just been diagnosed with cancer but he and Big Mama are unaware of it because his doctors and family have conspired to conceal this information. His relatives attempt to present themselves in the best possible light, each hoping to receive their proper share of Big Daddy’s enormous wealth in his will. Maggie, through wit and beauty, has escaped a childhood of desperate poverty to marry into the wealthy Pollitt family; ever since the suicide of his friend Skipper, though, Brick has neglected his wife and is indifferent about the disposition of the family fortune. This is a story of greed and deception within a patriarchal Southern family.
Suitable for adult audiences due to language and adult themes.

6:30 – 8:00 PM
Meet Your City’s LGBTQ Health Advocates: Columbus Public Health was awarded the Healthcare Equality Leader designation by the Human Rights Campaign in 2014. As only the second public health department in the country to earn this designation, Columbus Public Health is committed to serving the LGBTQ community with dignity and respect. Join us for a casual opportunity to meet your City of Columbus Public Health advocates. Among others, you will have the chance to meet with your LGBTQ Health Advocate, Dwayne Steward; LGBTQ Health Program Director, Julia Applegate; Director of Public Affairs and Communications, Jose Rodriguez, and Franklin County WIC Director, Steve Snyder-Hill.
This evening will also serve as recruitment event for the Greater Columbus LGBTQ Health Coalition. The Greater Columbus LGBTQ Health Coalition is a community-based initiative that consists of health care providers, caregivers, community leaders, organizations and allies, all with the goal of fostering positive health and safety outcomes within the city’s gender and sexually diverse communities. Community members are encouraged to join the coalition.
Please join us as we re-introduce the coalition and the LGBTQ Health Initiative to the community!
