UK Dates for 2015 Banff Mountain Film Festival

, January 17, 2015

As one of the most renowned outdoors film events, the Banff Mountain Film Festival (BMFF) is a treasure of curated outdoors cinema, chosen at  British Columbia’s alpine mecca at the end of 2014. Its accompanying tour will visit 45 countries during the 2014/15 circuit, reaching nearly half a million people. Fortunately, the UK & Ireland swing gets a good amount of attention from BMFF with 55 towns due for a screening between January and June.

The tour is split between Red and Blue screenings – featured films at each are listed on on the programme page. Choose Red and expect to see a canine’s love of the mountains with Sun Dog and the latest Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright cycling/climbing epic, Sufferfest 2: Desert Alpine.  Go Blue and you’ll find two unusual clips, one from Californian Chris Burkard in his surfing expedition to the Arctic, and another from Sherpas CinemasThe Wise Man of Mt. Norquay.
