It’s a pretty fantastic moment when you’re about to watch a film at The Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival and this opening trailer kicks off the night, sending a wave of goosebumps through the audience. I suspect that one of the reasons for that palpable moment is when the voice of Richard Armstrong fills the room, with the booming “Welcome…to the Banff Mountain Film Festival”.
He was back at The Banff Centre hosting the International Voice Workshops last week. While he keeps busy working around the world and teaching at NYU, in Banff he is fondly considered by many as the voice of the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival.
How does Richard feel about the role?
