Posted on January 16th, 2014 · Posted in Latest News

Now in it’s fifth year, the Banff Tour returns for screenings in a few locations in Ireland from January 30th-May 10th 2014. 

The festival showcases the best of the latest films from the global mountain sports community including climbing, alpinism, mountain biking, adventure travel, skiing and kayaking. New activities to the line-up this year are base-jumping, surfing and trail running.
The diverse film programme is selected from the 360 films, including award-winners and audience favourites, entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival held in the Canadian Rockies in November 2013.

The Tour is much more than a series of incredible film nights. It brings together people with all kinds of outdoor passions who come back every year to enjoy the fantastic community feeling and leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own next adventure.

With the increased number of venues plus increased size of venues, the expected audience figure is 28,000 (compared to 18,500 in 2013) – 6,000 of those will be from London’s outdoors community who will enjoy a night of adrenalin in the atmospheric Union Chapel, Islington which now has nine screenings and three different film programmes.

The World Tour travels the globe every year, visiting more than 400 communities and over 40 different countries from Australia through to Antarctica, being enjoyed by more than 300,000 people.
