Touring from now until 26 May, Banff Mountain Film Festival is back to bring you more extraordinary action and adventure films from all over the globe. The 2020 tour is set to be the most extensive yet, with 113 screenings across the UK and Ireland.
Held at the start of November in Banff, Canada, since 1975, the event is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain film festivals in the world. It receives hundreds of entries into its competition every year, with the best of these being shown at the festival, and a further selection being chosen for the world tour.
“As well as exhilarating stories starring intrepid characters and pioneering journeys, an evening at Banff is a celebration of the great outdoors, with a vibrant atmosphere and a real sense of community. And we guarantee audiences will leave inspired to have an adventure of their own,” says UK and Ireland tour director, Nell Teasdale. “We can’t wait to share the latest inspirational films from the world’s most prestigious mountain film festival on our biggest tour yet!”
The tour features two collections of short films, the Blue Programme and the Red Programme, showcasing some of the most inspiring journeys and spectacular cinematography from the world’s best adventure filmmakers. The event also features a free prize draw to win outdoorsy goodies from the festival’s tour partners.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival is screening at Cambridge Corn Exchange, with the Red Programme of films showing on 17 March and the Blue Programme showing on 21 April, both at 7.30pm.
