About the Banff Mountain Film Festival
The Festival happens over nine days each fall and features stories of profound journeys, unexpected adventures and ground-breaking expeditions told by renowned authors, photographers, adventurers and filmmakers from around the globe. Days after the Festival, our World Tour launches, bringing films to fans in over 40 countries.
Appalachian State University’s Outdoor Programs has been host for the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour for twenty years. The public screenings have built a reputation for the best mountain adventure, culture and environmental interest films. The Schaefer Center, which holds over 1600 people, is regularly sold out weeks in advance of the screenings to an enthusiastic mountain community.
Outdoor Programs also collaborates with the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts to host the Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition (AMPC). The AMPC is juried right here at Appalachian and the work is on display at the Turchin Center, (423 W. King Street, Boone) March 3 – June 3, 2017.
