The festival tour showcases a diverse collection of the newest and very best films from the global mountain culture and sports community. The two different film programmes, each approximately two and a half hours in length, are selected from over 350 films that have been entered into the prestigious 40th anniversary edition of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, held in the Canadian Rockies in November 2015.

The films highlight remote cultures, intense expeditions into exotic landscapes and bring adrenaline-packed action sports into sharp focus. Offering much more than a series of incredible film nights, the Tour attracts people with a wide range of outdoor passions who make an annual pilgrimage to an event to enjoy the community.
