With stops planned in about 400 communities and 40 countries across the globe this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Travelling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2014/15 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

From approximately 350 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favourites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.

Join your friends in the Golden Civic Centre when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Golden on Dec. 12.

The night will feature films such as: Tashi and the Monk, Tumwater Solitude, Afterglow, Mending the Line and Happy Winter.
