Get off the beaten path, stand on the highest peaks, ski the steepest slopes, and be a part of the gripping adventures waiting for you at this year's Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour.

From exploring remote landscapes to adrenaline-fueled action sports, films selected for the 2022/23 World Tour are sure to captivate and amaze you. Be moved. Be inspired. Don’t miss out! Different films will be screened each night. 

This event supports Adventure Rec student programs. In 2022, more than 1,100 attendees enjoyed three nights of films. Over $12,000 was raised to reduce students' costs to participate in Adventure Rec programs, affording them the chance to share in the magic of outdoor adventures. 

Film ratings and advisories are included in the descriptions. Consider checking before purchasing tickets for the young adventurers in your life.
