One of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world, the Banff Film Festival features a collection of inspiring films, with subject matter ranging from adrenaline-packed action sports to exploration of remote landscapes and cultures.
Following the Banff festival in the Canadian Rockies, the films hit the road and travel to more than 30 countries across the globe and persuade more than 200,000 people each year to gather indoors to celebrate the outdoors.
The tour will bring the collection of inspiring mountain films to centres across the UK and will complement the existing Banff screenings at Fort William and Dundee mountain film festivals.
Some of the award-winning mountain-based films include:
A selection of other mountain based films will also be shown featuring mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, whitewater kayaking (including a 60m waterfall drop), speed flying (a cross between paragliding and skiing), horseracing, and even a film about a German engineer aiming to build the world's biggest waterslide.
