The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is back for 2020, bringing a brand-new selection of gripping action and adventure films to more venues than ever before in the UK and Ireland.

The tour, running from 18 January-26 May, features two different collections of extraordinary films from the world’s best adventure film-makers, with super-human challenges, soulful journeys and spectacular cinematography from the wildest corners of the planet.

“We can’t wait to share the latest inspirational films from the world’s most prestigious mountain film festival on our biggest tour yet!” says UK and Ireland tour director Nell Teasdale.

“As well as exhilarating stories starring intrepid characters and pioneering journeys, an evening at Banff is a celebration of the great outdoors. With a vibrant atmosphere and a real sense of community, we guarantee audiences will leave inspired to have an adventure of their own!”

The tour’s films are chosen from hundreds of entries into the Banff Mountain Film Festival, which is held every November in the Canadian Rockies. The UK and Ireland tour starts in Pitlochry, Scotland, and finishes in Norwich, visiting 60 locations along the way, including Oxford’s New Theatre on 28 January, and Abingdon’s Amey Theatre on 5 February. As well as thrilling films, each event features a free prize draw for exciting outdoorsy goodies from the tour partners.
