Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour

It’s time for epic adventures indoors

Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. The 2020 Festival went virtual for the first time in its 45-year history. Following in the Festival’s footsteps the 2020-21 World Tour is hitting the virtual road and heading to a living room near you! This year’s tour will feature a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films, curated into online programs to be enjoyed from the comforts of home.

While we can’t replicate the experience of seeing the Banff films on the Wolf Performance Hall’s big screen, surrounded by friends and your community, these curated programs of outdoor films will still be sure to inspire and amaze the explorer in you!

Bring the adventure home for only $15 USD. Follow the link to purchase this year’s virtual edition
