Banff Mountain Film Festival - Friday 16th May @7.30pm - City West Church - Tickets $15 NZAC members and U15s, $20 non-members, available from Kiwi Outdoors Centre
The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the films to audiences around the globe. Immediately after the Canadian Festival ends in November, a selection of the best films goes on tour internationally to 40 countries reaching more than 390,000 people at over 840 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.
Every year, the Banff World Tour team licenses about 25 films that feature a range of styles and themes, including climbing, skiing, kayaking, biking, adventure, culture and the environment. When making this selection many factors are considered: comments made by our pre-screening committee, audience reaction to the films shown in Banff, and feedback we've received from the tour audience.
The local organizers choose the films that are likely to be best suited for their local audience and event. Most screenings include about 6 to 10 films.
