Banff Mountain Film Festival and Book Festival - The world’s best mountain films, books, and speakers take the spotlight for nine days each fall in Banff.
The Banff Film Festival, presented by Natural Geographic and New Balance, offers big picture that delivers those stores in ways that will amaze, inspire, and move you.
The Banff Mountain Book Festival, presented by Canadian Mountain Holiday and Natural Geographic, brings mountain stories alive.
The Banff Film Festival World Tour brings Banff to audiences around the globe. Immediately after the Festival ends in November, a selection of the best films go on tour across Canada, the United States, and internationally from Scotland to South Africa to China, Japan, New Zealand, Antarctica, and points in between. Each year, the films travel to 32 countries reaching more than 245,000 people at over 635 screenings.
Host organizations in each tour location choose a program that reflects the interests of their local audiences from a selection of films on exploration and adventure, culture and environment, and mountain sports.
The proceeds of many tour screenings benefit a local outdoor program, community cause, or a non-profit such as youth adventure and outdoor pursuit programs, search and rescue operations, climbing clubs, adaptive sport programs, conservation groups, and trail maintenance organizations.
Mark your calendars for the 39th annual Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival: November 1-9, 2014.
