Dec. 3-9: The Banff Mountain Film Festival!Banff Mountain Film Festival!
Each October, the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, Canada, hosts an international film festival that draws hundreds of visitors from around the world. Over the course of four days, attendees see an amazingly huge selection of mountain-related films. At the end of the festival, they pack up the best films and send them on tour.
Each December, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour makes its way to Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia, where The Mountaineers have been hosting showings for over a decade. The Seattle show, in fact, is one of the largest in North America!
So if you live in Seattle, Tacoma or Olympia, mark your calendars and cancel any other engagements, because this is one set of films you do not want to miss.
