Banff Mountain Film Festival – Launceston

The world's most prestigious mountain film festival

About

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is reaching new heights as it tours Australia in 2016.

The world’s most prestigious mountain film festival is coming back to Australia: the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is presenting over 2 1/2 hours of the most enthralling mountain adventure films that will have you on the edge of your seat.

The tour is hot on the heels of the largest – and one of the most prestigious – mountain festivals in the world, the Banff Mountain Festival, which takes place every November in the mountain town of Banff, in Canada.

More than 300 of the world’s best mountain sport, culture, environment, adventure, and exploration films are shown during the week-long event. A selection of award winners and audience favourites then tours the globe, visiting 390 communities and 35 countries as part of the festival’s official world tour.

This year, the Australian line-up features two-and-a-half hours of captivating short films shot in some of the most wild and remote corners of the world. Sure to enthral, it showcases a selection of films packed full of mesmerising cinematography, thought-provoking storylines and adrenalin-inducing action sequences.

Audiences will experience incredible highs and agonising lows through the lenses of some of the most accomplished climbers, paddlers, skiers, snowboarders, mountaineers, mountain bikers, explorers and adventure filmmakers alive today.

Presented by World Expeditions, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour will have you planning your next adventure before the credits roll.
