A Santa Barbara institution, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is a fan favorite. Featuring the world’s best films and videos on mountain subjects, the tour awes viewers with thrills and grandeur captured in exotic locations worldwide. A wide variety of film subjects are showcased, from extreme sports to mountain culture and the environment. Be sure to attend both nights, as an entirely different program of films screens each evening.
This year marks 27 years of screening the festival’s finest creations from mountain filmmakers and athletes, and brings about a superb mix of high-octane exploration, adventure and mountain culture films from around the world. In the mix this year are 16 stories that span from adventures in the Amazon to the mythical peaks of Mont Blanc; from the wild imaginings of a child to the true-story feats of a 90-year-old; from hiking to biking and from kayaks to skis.
