The Banff Film Festival’s best-of tour is at the Boulder Theater tonight and tomorrow, and it’s the perfect antidote to the emptiness of your post-Olympic life. (Other tips for getting over that here.)
Side note: When I talked to Nick Rosen, of Boulder’s Sender Films, for the story I wrote about Banff, he said something about film subject Chris Sharma that I have to share here: “Not only is he devastatingly attractive, but he’s also – in the most romantic way — traveling the world looking for inspiring, totally cutting edge breakthrough rock climbs.”
Devastatingly attractive. Big kudos to Rosen for being man enough to say that about another man, first off. And no wonder one of the comments I heard about this story was that the photo of Sharma was like Sports Illustrated meets Harlequin.
