Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival

October 30 - November 7, 2021

Every fall the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival shares tales of enthralling journeys and ground-breaking expeditions told by authors, photographers, adventurers, and filmmakers from around the world. Whether you’re a hardened explorer or armchair traveller, the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival will captivate and kindle your spirit for adventure and the mountains. Explore far off lands, spark your imagination, and delve deep into the profound and often life-changing stories. You’re sure to leave feeling moved and inspired. 

The 2020 Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is going virtual. Using a digital platform, festival loyalists and newcomers will be able to access the same great content from the comfort and safety of their homes. The digital festival will feature epic adventure and mountain culture films, speaker interviews, a virtual marketplace and beer tent, book readings, panel discussions, and more. Some of the curated content will be free of charge to access from anywhere in the world.

Tickets and access passes will be on sale by mid-September in advance of the October 31 to November 8, 2020 festival dates.

World Tour Update
Following the 2020 festival, Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour will proceed with live events where restrictions on activities and health considerations will allow. In the meantime, the current 2019/20 World Tour has reactivated in certain areas where it has been deemed safe by local organizers.
