Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Fort McMurrray

Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour comes to Fort McMurrray on January 12 & 13.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival, a program of The Banff Centre, is the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world. Hot on the heels of the festival held every fall in Banff, Alberta, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. With stops planned in about 390 communities and 35 countries across the globe, this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Traveling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2011/2012 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
From approximately 300 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.
