The Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. Held every fall in Banff, Alberta, the 2020 Festival went virtual for the first time in its 45-year history.
Following in the Festival’s footsteps, the 2020-21 World Tour is hitting the virtual road and heading to a living room near you!
From the over 400 entries submitted into the festival each year, award-winning films and audience favorites are carefully selected to travel the globe. This year’s tour will feature a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films, curated into online programs to be enjoyed from the comforts of home. Typically, the World Tour has stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe. Traveling to stunning landscapes and remote vistas, the 2020/2021 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
After hosting the World Tour in Huntsville for over 26 years, Algonquin Outfitters is not able to show the film festival at the Algonquin Theatre this January due to pandemic-related restrictions. While we are very disappointed about not being able to present the films in person, we are very excited to be a virtual host. Join Algonquin Outfitters when the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Huntsville virtually on Thursday, November 26. Visit https://algonquinoutfitters.com/event/banff-mountain-film-festival-2021/ for film information and a link to where you can watch the films.
Starting November 26, two programs of films will be available. Stay tuned for updates, as the Banff Centre will release more programs as the season progresses. A single program ($15USD) will have a three-day rental period, and a bundle of two programs ($28USD) will have a rental period of 14 days. You can view the films as many times as you like during the rental period, which begins as soon as you hit ‘play’.
By using the referral link from Algonquin Outfitters, a portion of the proceeds will go to support local organizations like the Algonquin Theatre (https://www.algonquintheatre.ca), the Huntsville Mountain Bike Association (https://huntsvillemountainbike.ca/) and the West Wind Highlands Ski Touring Association (http://wwhsta.org/).
