We’re excited to announce a unique Socality x Canon Creator Lab creative experience at the Banff Gondola in collaboration with Pursuit featuring a brand new immersive experience called “Nightrise”.

Join us on December 5th where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with the local creative community for an evening of wonder on top of Sulphur Mountain. This private event will offer the opportunity to explore and capture the new Nightrise experience. This experience merges multimedia, storytelling and nature for a new and inspiring perspective at such an iconic Banff location. Created by Montreal’s Moment Factory with the participation of the Stoney Nakoda Nation, Nightrise brings the nighttime silence and wonder of the Canadian Rockies to life in unforgettable ways.

Your ticket includes your gondola ride up and down, beverages (beer, wine, cocktails included) and charcuterie and snacks.

As part of the Canon Creator Lab program, a variety of Canon gear will be available to try including new mirrorless bodies and the latest lenses. If you’d like to borrow Canon equipment to shoot during the event, please bring your own SD Card and a valid piece of government ID. A limited amount of gear will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

Note: Food and drinks will be served in a private room which you will have access to for the duration of the event.
