Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook is hosting the 2020-21 Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour!
Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. Held every fall from the Rocky Mountains of Banff, Canada, the 2020 Festival went virtual for the first time in its 45-year history. Following in the Festival’s footsteps, the 2020-21 World Tour is hitting the virtual road and heading to a living room near you!
From the over 400 entries submitted into the Festival each year, award-winning films and audience favourites are carefully selected to travel the globe. This year’s tour will feature a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films.
As a bonus, when you buy a ticket for the Amber Program, Onyx Program, or World Tour Bundle, the proceeds help us to run environmental conservation, education and sustainability programs throughout the year.
So, fluff up your couch cushions and grab your snack of choice, because Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour is going VIRTUAL!
