The Banff Mountain Film Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. The "mothership" festival has been held at the start of November each year since 1975 in Banff, Canada. The festival draws some of the world's best film makers and accomplished outdoor heroes to celebrate adventure, the environment, mountain culture and the outdoors through film.
Hot on the heels of the festival each year, the best films head off on the Banff Mountain Festival World Tour with stops in around 285 communities and 39 countries across the globe. The Banff films toured across Belgium for the first time in 2010. And for the fifth time in 2014 it will head out across the country.
