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 favorites are carefully selected to travel the globe. This year’s tour will feature a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films, curated into online programs to be enjoyed from the comforts of home. Typically, the World Tour has stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe.
Traveling to stunning landscapes and remote vistas, the 2020/2021 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
Leavenworth Winter Sports Club will be your virtual host and will bring BMFF and the spirit of outdoor adventure to your living room.
A single program ($15USD) will have a 3-day rental period, and the bundle of two programs ($28USD) will have a rental period of 14 days. Customers can view the films as many times as they like during the rental period which begins immediately upon viewing (ie – as soon as they hit play)
