The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour offers audiences the opportunity to travel the world and experience a selection of inspirational, exhilarating and unforgettable adventures from the comfort of a theatre chair.

Now in its seventh edition, the 2016 UK and Ireland Banff Tour will share a collection of exhilarating short films with more than 80 screenings in over 50 locations across two different film programmes in early 2016.

The festival tour showcases a diverse collection of the newest and very best films from the global mountain culture and sports community. The two different film programmes, each of approximately two and a half hours in length, will be selected from over 350 films that have been entered into the prestigious 40th anniversary edition of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, held in the Canadian Rockies in November 2015.

The Tour is much more than a series of incredible film nights. It brings together people with a wide range of outdoor passions who return every year to enjoy the community feel of a Banff screening and leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures.

The popularity of the UK and Ireland leg of the Banff World Tour is quickly growing. In 2016, the Tour is expected to bring together more than 50,000 adventure lovers, celebrating the outdoors in unique venues right across the UK and Ireland. The World Tour travels the globe every year, visiting over 45 different countries and being enjoyed by more than 400,000 people worldwide.

The full film programme will be announced in early January 2016.
