Banff Mountain Film Festival

bf-logo Brought to you by Denali, this “must see” film festival brings the spirit of outdoor adventure and mountain culture to Connecticut each year. This year’s World Tour features the best mountain films, showcasing amazing film-making talent from the world over to an audience that spans the globe allowing everyone to experience the inspiring stories that drive us to keep exploring the world outside.

The World Tour features a collection of exhilarating and provocative films that explore life in the mountains. They highlight remote cultures, intense expeditions into exotic landscapes and bring adrenaline-packed action sports into sharp focus.

For all of us involved, the best part of hosting the World Tour is being able to witness a community of film buffs and lovers of the outdoors come together to share stories, be inspired to set out on new adventures and learn about the mountains they love. You will always connect with old friends and make new ones at the World Tour screenings.

Proceeds from these shows support The Denali Foundation and other Connecticut based environmental non-profit organizations.
