Banff Centre Mountain Film & Book Festival

BUFF® Staff / 10-27-2021

The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition and annual presentation of films and documentaries about mountain culture, environment, sports, and adventure & exploration. The Banff Festival of Mountain Films by The Banff Centre was launched in 1976 and is held every fall in Banff, Alberta. The Banff Mountain Book Festival is also held at the same time, which brings the spirit of mountain literature to Banff, and features guest speakers, seminars, readings and an international book competition.

Film Festival US Tour

After the festival ends in November, a selection of the best films entered in the festival goes on tour. The host organization in each tour location chooses a program that reflects the interests of their community. Each community creates a unique celebration of local adventure and adventurers.
