More Changes At Banff

Tuesday, 19 January 2010

It seems the restructuring at the Banff Mountain Festivals isn't over yet. C&F hears that the book festival, a precious jewel in the English-speaking world with no equivalent anywhere else, has been split off from the film festival and will now come under the control of the director of Banff's Literary Arts department. Banff is said to be looking to hire a new mountain book festival director, a role previously held by Shannon O'Donoghue, who continues as film festival director. O'Donoghue is known and admired throughout the mountain world, and she'll be a very hard act to follow. How this impacts on the book awards is yet to be seen.
