History of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour:

Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour was born from Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival which began in Banff, Alberta. In 1976 a tight-knit group of climbers and outdoor enthusiasts conceived The Banff Festival of Mountaineering Films. This was one-day gathering that became the renowned international Festival it is today. Over 30 years ago, Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival began an outreach program to bring the Festival to other communities. This has become known as Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Like the first festival in Banff, the tour began small – three cities across Canada. Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour now reaches over 40 countries and brings mountain films to an audience of over 550,000 worldwide in approximately 550 locations.

Screenings of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Canada and the USA are presented by Rab and Banff and Lake Louise Tourism; sponsored by Deuter, Clif Bar & Company, Mountain House, Oboz Footwear, Buff®, YETI Coolers, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Smartwool, Kathmandu, NOLS, Kicking Horse Coffee, World Expeditions, The Lake Louise Ski Resort
