Tap the Rockies

The Banff Centre, seated in the heart of Alberta's Rockies, is on a mission to inspire creativity throughout the world through ideas and art, and the Banff Mountain Film Festival has helped achieve this goal for the past 36 years. For nearly two decades, the inspiration has hit a global scale with the festival's World Tour.

The films

Each festival film is on a mountain subject, whether it's sports or conservation. Last year, more than 300 films were submitted from first-time filmmakers and pros alike, and only 50 made it to the fest.
