Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour

RTPI is honored to host the incredible Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour each spring here in Jamestown. Although we hoped to be able to reschedule our in-person event at Reg Lenna Center for the Arts, the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 has forced us to cancel the live screening until 2021.

Right now, we are offering a special online screening opportunity.
Three pre-packaged Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour programs are available from September 16th through October 24th, 2020.

Purchase access to this special online Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour by clicking HERE.  

The price for each program is $15, or you can view all three for $40. Learn more about the films featured in the 2019-2020 program.

Not only will your purchase provide access to an outstanding lineup of films,
but a portion of the proceeds will also benefit RTPI’s Art, Education, and Conservation programs.

Screenings of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Canada and the USA are presented by Rab and Banff and Lake Louise Tourism; sponsored by Deuter, Clif Bar & Company, Mountain House, Oboz Footwear, Buff®, YETI Coolers, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Smartwool, Kathmandu, NOLS, Kicking Horse Coffee, World Expeditions, The Lake Louise Ski Resort

The Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world.  Hot on the heels of the festival held every fall in Banff, Canada, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. Host organizations in each tour location help to choose a program that reflects the interests of their community, creating a unique celebration of adventure and adventurers at each stop.

With stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe, this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Traveling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2019/2020 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.  From approximately 400 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.
