We are your resource for the Banff Mountain Film Festival at Appalachian State University
The Banff Mountain Film Festival – a program of The Banff Centre – is the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain film festivals in the world and the screenings at App State have become one of the largest in North America. The Banff Film Festival World Tour is planning screenings in over 1,000 communities and 35 countries across the globe this year.
Local tour hosts like App State University Recreation choose the program from the best of over 400 films submitted to the Banff Film Festival. Typically, three completely different screenings will be shown on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. “We will highlight award winning mountain films each night that share stories from mountain communities, follow inspiring adventures, and capture unique environments,” said University Recreation Associate Director Rich Campbell. “We try to keep each night well balanced but entirely different so audiences are exposed to as many different films as possible during the festival, showcasing diverse perspectives from around the globe.”
“The Banff Film Festival is highly anticipated every spring underscoring how strongly this festival is supported in the High Country. Our community has embraced the diverse people, themes, and stunning locations that the World Tour brings to us every year and I think our audience will be inspired by the quality, diversity, creativity, and passion the films highlight” states Campbell.
