Every fall, the Banff Centre congregates the world's best in mountain films, books, and speakers with thousands of mountain and art enthusiasts. An event that is always anticipated by the local community, it also draws thousands of international visitors to be a part of this world-class event.
It is a time to celebrate and share the inspirations that the great mountains give us.
"Nine days you won’t want to miss."
Banff is internationally recognized as a mountain adventure base, so it only makes sense that this event takes place here as people share the experience of mountain adventure through various art forms.
Just look at past festival guests such as Sir Edmund Hillary (first man to climb Mt. Everest), Jon Krakauer, Aaron Ralston, and Alex Lowe.
