Fluff  your couch cushions, grab some snacks, and make sure you have good internet connection, because the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour is going virtual this year, and we have your exclusive access! 

For the first time ever you can travel to breathtaking destinations, embark on daring expeditions, and celebrate the most remarkable outdoor achievements - all from the comfort of your living room.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created extraordinary circumstances around the world, and our live Mountaineers Banff World Tour screenings have been postponed or canceled. While we can’t replicate the experience of seeing the Banff films on the big screen surrounded by your friends and community at your local theatre, we are excited to be able to offer you access to curated programs of amazing outdoor films. No doubt they will still inspire you to live life to the fullest.

The Banff Centre will continue to add new playlists for purchase in early 2021. Be sure to check back after enjoying your first show this winter!

*The rental period begins immediately upon viewing (as soon as you press play). You will need to have an internet or wifi connection to view the films, as they are available only through online streaming (not download). If you have technical questions, reach out to the Banff help Centre for more information.

Live In Person Events

Due to Washington State COVID-19 gathering restrictions and concerns for public health, The Mountaineers is postponing  in-person screenings. The support of our community, partners, and venues is still important and if we can safely gather later in the spring or summer of 2021 we hope to host in-person events in our Tacoma and Olympia branches. We will share more details as it becomes available.
