Extreme sports anyone? Rock climbing, mountain biking, wind surfing and flying can all be witnessed when the Vancouver International Film Festival comes to California State University, Sacramento at 7 p.m., Sunday November 3.

The event is a fundraiser for the recreation and leisure studies department scholarship fund, and will be held in University Union Ballroom 1.

The movies are as follows:

  • "Realization" shows Chris Sharma climb one of the most difficult natural rock routes in Southern France.
  • "Pilot Notes 1" features Robert Fulton flying over remote mountain ranges in South America.
  • "Dirt Divas" tracks several female mountain bikers as they ride and race throughout the United States and Canada.
  • "Camanchaca" documents windsurfing on high-elevation lakes in South America.

Ticket holders are also invited to attend a seminar on the physiological aspects of outdoor recreation from 6 to 7 p.m. in the same location. CSUS professors Daryl Parker and Roberto Quintana will be speak.
