Banff Mountain Film Festival

The Banff Mountain Film Festival launches their World Tour in Seattle at The Mountaineers Program Center each year!

The Banff Centre is a global arts and creativity incubator, inspiring creativity in artists, leaders, and researchers worldwide. The annual Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour aims to provide a concentrated presentation of the diversity of the multi-day Banff festival in just a couple of hours. Screenings include a range of different themes (adventure sports, environment, mountain culture, heritage, etc.) and styles (action-filled shorts, amateur and professional productions, comprehensive features, etc.).

Proceeds will benefit The Mountaineers and support our mission-based recreation, conservation and education efforts in the community.
