About

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour consists of some of the best outdoor films shown at the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Banff, Canada, each fall. The films range from high-adrenaline outdoor adventure stories (climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, etc.) to thoughtful studies of mountain cultures and environmental issues around the world. The tour is what would happen if X-Games teamed up with National Geographic.
