Additionally, University Recreation has announced that the Banff Mountain Film Festival will be returning to the High Country in 2023! The Banff Film Festival collects short documentary films about the Great Outdoors from all over the world, and their screenings often feature raffles, sweepstakes, and giveaways.

In culture news, Will Smith gave his first major interview on TV since his now-infamous Oscars win last March, wherein he slapped Chris Rock on live TV over a joke he made about Smith’s wife. According to NPR, Smith spoke to Trevor Noah on the late night host’s show, discussing the “rage” he felt and seeking to forgive himself for being “human.” Smith was on the show to promote his new film “Emancipation,” about which he says he understands if audiences aren’t ready to embrace him again. “Emancipation” is out December 9th on Apple TV Plus.

Finally, the weather as ever from Boone Weather DOT COM. It’s a high of 52 today and a low of 22, so a bit warmer than the norm, but watch out for the occasional rain shower! Have a great one Mountaineers.
