Since 1976, the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, a flagship program of Banff Centre, has been an industry leader in the celebration of Mountain Culture. We promote understanding and appreciation of the world’s mountain places by creating opportunities for people to share and find inspiration in mountain experiences, ideas, and visions. Following the festival each fall, our annual World Tour reaches more than 40 countries on 7 continents, making us the largest adventure film tour on the planet.
The World Tour is on now – check in with your local host for more information! Virtual screenings are also available.
The Book Competition and Film Competition are currently open.
The Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is now open. Apply now!
2021 Award-Winners - watch online and monthly at Lux Cinema Banff.
