Best Of The Banff Mountain Film Festival 2018

Tickets now on sale at ByTowne & Trailhead Paddle Shack

It’s back! Trailhead Paddle Shack and the ByTowne present the 41st edition of the Best Of The Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Poster for the 2018 edition of the Best Of Banff Mountain Film FestivalThe Best Of is a touring selection of prizewinners and highlights from the Banff Mountain Film Festival, an annual event that showcases short films on mountain sports, adventure and the environment. Many of the top award winners are featured in the show, which offers plenty of enlightenment and entertainment for anyone who loves the great outdoors.

The films are introduced by a Banff Festival representative, and the evening includes additional information on clothes and equipment for outdoor activities, along with door prizes!

The show will be presented four times, starting with a new weekend time slot, Sunday January 7 at 2:00 pm. The remaining shows will all be at the customary 7:30 pm time, on Monday Jan. 8th, Tuesday Jan. 9th and Wednesday, Jan. 10th. After selling out three shows for a number of years in a row, we've added the Sunday matinée to satisfy customer demand. Maybe this time there will be tickets available right up until the last minute – but why gamble? Get over to Trailhead Paddleshack to pick up your tickets (and maybe a couple more as gifts for the outdoorsy person on your Christmas list) right away!
