about the festival
With nearly 400 films in competition, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour confirms its status as the world's largest film event of its kind

For 45 years now, The directors of the best adventure films meet in the heart of Banff National Park to submit to the jury of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival their spectacular expeditions, carried out everywhere on the planet.

In Quebec, our team makes a selection from among the 100 or so films chosen for the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, which takes place in late October and early November each year. This year, we are planning the Quebec Tour for theatrical release from late January to mid-March. If Public Health obligations related to the pandemic do not allow it, we will make sure to inform you as soon as possible.

The varied program and the quality of the images make this cinematic event a unique moment for the mountain, nature and adventure lover. Tickets sell out quickly and many cities sell out days and even weeks before the show, so act fast!
