The Banff Mountain Film Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. The "mothership" festival has been held at the start of November each year since 1975 in Banff, Canada.  The festival draws some of the world's best film makers and accomplished outdoor heroes to celebrate adventure, the environment, mountain culture and the outdoors through film.

Hot on the heels of the festival each year, the best films head off on the Banff Mountain Festival World Tour with stops in around 285 communities and 30 countries across the globe.  The Banff films toured across the UK for the first time in 2010 and returned in 2011 visiting even more cities across England, Scotland and Wales.  

Through the big screen you see highlights of incredible adventure sports, visit remote cultures and some of the world's last great wild places. We would love to see you at your local festival screening.

An exhilarating evening with great (and free!) prize giveaways, this is a must-see for mountain enthusiasts and those with a spirit of adventure!
