What is Banff Mountain Film Festival?
The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition featuring the world’s best footage on mountain subjects. The festival began in 1976 and is held annually on the first weekend in November in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival began in 1976 in Banff, Alberta – when a tight-knit group of climbers and outdoor enthusiasts conceived The Banff Festival of Mountaineering Films. This was a one-day gathering that was intended as a community event during the quiet fall season.
