In 1986, The Banff Mountain Film Festival began an outreach program to bring the festival to other communities. Banff’s Festival organizers wanted to share the efforts and talents of the world’s finest mountain filmmakers with a larger audience. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings mountain films to thousands of people who cannot make the annual trek to the Canadian Rockies.
What Films Will Be Showing in Tucson?
Every year, the Banff World Tour team licenses about 25 films that feature a range of styles and themes, including climbing, skiing, kayaking, biking, adventure, culture and the environment. When making this selection many factors are considered: comments made by our pre-screening committee, audience reaction to the films shown in Banff, and feedback we’ve received from the tour audience.
The local organizers work with us to choose the films that are likely to be best suited for their local audience and event. Most screenings include about 6 to 10 films.
