virtual edition 2022

For a second year, the Festival is going virtual. All indoor presentations have been suspended. But there are advantages to not being able to meet up like we have been doing for several years!

Once you have purchased your ticket, you will be able to watch the films at your own pace and on the device of your choice. Remember! You have 30 days to watch your films. These 30 days start right after the purchase confirmation of your ticket.

Although there are two distinct movie programs available, we recommend that you opt for the BIG ADVENTURE package, which gives you access to 18 movies for a total of just over 4.5 hours of adventure (all movies in the Red and Blue programs).

BEFORE YOU BUY. Make sure your equipment is compatible with the viewing platform of our partner LEPOINTDEVENTE by going here

The films are screened via a video-on-demand platform. This year, we are pleased to announce that we have retained the services of a Quebec company: LEPOINTDEVENTE.COM.


Each program is composed of several short and medium length films. If you choose the program THE GREAT ADVENTURE, you will have access to 18 films with a total duration of a little over 4h30. If you choose one of the simple programs (Red or Blue), you have access to 9 films with a total duration of 132 to 148 minutes.


NEW STARTING MARCH 1, 2022. You have 30 days to watch all the movies! You can stop the movie and resume it at any time you want. You can also watch each movie up to two times (for your personal use).



IMPORTANT. The 30 days viewing period starts immediately after the purchase of your ticket. After that, the films will no longer be available. BEFORE YOU BUY. Make sure your equipment is compatible with the viewing platform of our partner LEPOINTDEVENTE by going HERE

Following the announcement of the Government of Quebec, theaters are closed since December 20, 2021 for an indefinite period. This measure has forced us to suspend the indoor performances planned for the 2022 Tour.

For those of you who have purchased a ticket for one of the originally scheduled performances, you will find below the status of the situation for each venue. Depending on the venue you have a ticket for, you have been offered a transfer to virtual, a postponement to 2023 or a refund.

As of January 20, the vast majority of venues have completed this process with you by phone, email or text. In some cases, a credit has already been applied to your credit card (see your Online Statement).

Below is a list of all cities originally scheduled for the tour and their status as of January 20, 2022.

The festival team thanks you for your patience and understanding. And we hope to see you with us for this virtual edition 2022 which starts on January 20th!

the program

The program are available now. You can subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know or follow us on Facebook. The list of films will be unveiled here

The Quebec Tour team travels to the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, which takes place every year at the end of October and beginning of November in the heart of Banff National Park in Alberta, to see the hundred or so films in the official selection. Then, with the collaboration of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival team, we select the short and medium-length films that will be presented in Quebec. The quality of the images, the variety of themes and locations, the originality of the subject matter and treatment are essential elements to consider. The same goes for sexual and gender diversity.
Ensuring genre diversity is one of the goals of our team when building the program. The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival is always on the lookout for films that reflect the diversity of our society. In the end, it is the overall quality of the film (images, script, originality of the theme and the protagonists’ words, treatment, rhythm, etc.) that determines whether or not it is selected.
We do not own the rights to the films you see on the Tour, so we cannot sell copies for home viewing or create DVD compilations. Our rights are limited to the screening of the current year’s films. Each director is free to distribute his film as he wishes. Do you have a question about a particular film? Please contact us.
The introductory video at the beginning of each evening features footage from the Banff Festival films, as well as footage to recognize the contributions of the national sponsors. Their support is essential to the development of the festival and its world tour. These same partners are the ones who present the door prizes that are drawn on stage after the break during each performance. The organizers of the Quebec tour do not receive any financial remuneration from these sponsors.

the tour

Performances are 3 hours long, including intermission and raffle. We open the doors to the theatre approximately 1 hour before the performance begins. Most venues are general admission, so we recommend arriving early to ensure good seats and to ensure a fluidity with the control of the sanitary passes. The evening begins with the official World Tour introduction video. Then, each film is introduced on stage with a short animation. After intermission, there will be a draw for door prizes donated by the Festival’s partners.
Yes, you will be required to present your health passport and identification upon arrival. Please note that masks must be worn at all times during the evening.
The Festival team does not keep a waiting list so there is no need to contact us about this. We advise you to look for another date or a city near you!On the night of the performance, a ticket office will be open. It is possible that tickets may become available. The policy is that tickets not claimed by 7:00 pm (start of the performance) will be released for sale on the spot if people are waiting. However, we cannot guarantee that any will be available.
Tickets are available on the evening of the performance. Please note, however, that we recommend purchasing tickets in advance to avoid waiting in line at the box office and missing the start of the performance. More importantly, some evenings sell out days before the performance. In the end, it’s best to have your tickets in your pocket as soon as possible.

radical reels

It is still too early to confirm the event! Stay tuned via our social networks or our newsletter.
The Radical Reels evening includes many elements of the World Tour screenings. However, the focus is on 100% adrenaline films featuring action sports such as skiing, rock climbing, kayaking, basejumping, snowboarding and new sports such as snowkiting. These activities continue to be included in the World Tour, but Radical Reels is aimed at an audience that prefers action. In addition, the programming planned for this evening is unique and different from that presented during the Tour. Radical Reels is the perfect night for those who want to be adventurous! Please note that all films are presented in their original version (often in English) and are not subtitled in French.

general questions

To submit a film, you must register directly with the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival team. Anyone, professional or amateur, is encouraged to submit a film. The important thing is to have an inspiring story, treated with originality, supported by quality images. The length of a film does not guarantee its quality! Sometimes it is better to have a well-crafted 5-minute film than a 45-minute film where the story is unnecessarily long and the pace does not capture the attention. The registration period usually runs from May to August.
The Festival stops in 21 cities in Quebec and covers a vast territory from January to March. We are always open to the possibility of stopping in other cities or regions. You think you are an outdoor destination and that an audience would be interested in the event? Let’s talk!

Due to the virtual format of this year’s event, we will not be needing volunteers. See you next year!

What is the difference between Solo and Household tickets
Which option should I choose? "It's a personal decision," says Stéphane Corbeil, the tour's instigator. Am I alone in listening to the films or will there be more than one person in front of the screen?" An advantageous pricing is offered for people who want to be in solidarity with the Quebec tour by opting for the Household option which takes into account that several people will enjoy the films together.
