It’s February, and that means the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is well underway, covering 40 countries with an expected audience of 400,000.

If you’ve never seen this amazing show, you’ve been missing out! It’s guaranteed to fuel your passion for outdoor adventure.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an annual event

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is a creation of the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada, which supports the development of new art in many disciplines. Each year, the center holds its Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, which includes a competition for the best outdoor documentary films. The most suitable of these, usually the shorter ones, are chosen for its world tour.

Each location that hosts the tour selects the most relevant films for its audience. For the 2014-15 tour there are 28 films to choose from.

Many of the films (and the trailer) do contain prominent sponsorship messages because some of the filmmakers and athletes have sponsors who require acknowledgment. The tour itself is also supported by commercial interests and it might be off-putting for some, but that doesn’t change the fact that the filmmaking is beautiful and the stories compelling.
