Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour is Returning Bigger than Ever!

22nd -23rd March at Bath, Komedia

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is back in the UK and Ireland for 2017, with more screenings and more action than ever before.

Featuring an evening of exhilarating adventure films, the tour kicks off in Brighton on 25 January and finishes in Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire, on 17 May, with nearly 100 screenings at over 50 venues along the way.

“It’s fantastic to be back with our biggest tour yet – a reflection of the enormous appetite for

adventure that UK and Irish audiences have,” says Tour Director Nell Teasdale.

“The Banff Tour is more than a series of exhilarating film nights. Each screening offers a real sense of community, bringing together people with a wide range of outdoor passions. And we guarantee that viewers will leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures too!”

The short films, starring the world’s top adventurers on exciting journeys in mind-blowing

destinations, are selected from hundreds of films entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival held every year in the Canadian Rockies.

The UK and Ireland tour has two different programmes of films to choose from, each lasting about 2½ hours, with free prize giveaways at each screening. The tour is part of the wider Banff World Tour, which travels the globe each year, visiting nearly 50 countries and reaching more than 400,000 people worldwide.
