Algonquin Outfitters is again bringing the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to the beautiful Algonquin Theatre for two nights. Each evening will feature a different selection of films. Stay tuned to this blog, film descriptions will be posted mid-December.
For the last ten years, Algonquin Outfitters has hosted this spectacular showing of mountain films in Huntsville. Films in the world tour bring the spirit of adventure to life on the screen and feature a wide variety of stories - from mountain sports, mountain culture and the environment - to entice and inspire viewers.
The tour features a collection of inspiring and thought-provoking action, environmental, and adventure mountain films. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures, to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is produced by Mountain Culture at The Banff Centre, and features award-winning films and audience favorites from approximately 300 films entered in the annual festival in Banff, Alberta. The world tour spans the globe, making its way to North and South America, Europe, South Africa, India, Poland and Iceland.
