The Festival began in Banff, Alberta in 1976 when a tight-knit group of climbers and outdoor enthusiasts conceived The Banff Festival of Mountaineering Films. This one-day gathering became the renowned international Festival it is today. Over 30 years ago, Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival began an outreach program to bring the Festival to other communities. This became known as the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Like the first festival in Banff, the tour started small – in three cities across Canada. Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour now reaches over 40 countries and brings mountain films to an audience of over 550,000 worldwide in approximately 550 locations.
Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. Following the yearly Festival held in fall in beautiful Banff, Alberta, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. With stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe, the Banff World Tour celebrates amazing achievements in outdoor storytelling and filmmaking worldwide.
From the over 400 entries submitted to the Festival each year, award-winners and audience favorites are among the films carefully selected to play in theaters around the world.
Traveling to remote vistas, analyzing topical environmental issues, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2021/2022 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
