With extreme skiing, mountain biking, climbing and more, the festival features two new collections of action films from remote regions of the globe. 

"Get ready for an inspirational night of adventure from the wildest corners of the planet!" says tour director Nell Teasdale. 

"With intrepid athletes, spectacular cinematography and a big dose of adrenaline, the Banff  Mountain Film Festival stars the best new films from the world's top adventure filmmakers. 

"Plus, we guarantee you'll be inspired to have an adventure of your own as well!" 
 
Banff tour films are chosen from hundreds of entries into the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, which is held every November in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. 

Now in its 15th year, the UK and Ireland tour will visit over 50 locations in spring and autumn 2024. 

Film highlights include:
 
Chronoception 

An expedition along the ancient Silk Road into one of the least explored regions of Asia: the Tien Shan mountains, on the Kyrgyzstan-China border. Three skiers and snowboarders follow in the footsteps of Kyrgyzstan's nomadic people, to find themselves thrown into a world where time and space appear to stand still. Facing wild mountain landscapes, wild weather patterns and wild animals, the trio battle hostile conditions to ski stunning lines down truly immaculate peaks. 

Cross Countries 

French mountain biking legend Kilian Bron spends his time travelling the world looking for thrilling routes to ride, and this time he"s crossing North America on some of the continent's most iconic trails. From urban bike life in New York City, to red rock formations in Moab, to dense Canadian forests, Kilian embarks on the ultimate ride – captured with his signature artistic flair. 

Going Greenland 

How do we follow our dreams while living in a way that is more in harmony with our environment? Athletes Rachael Burks and Jessica Baker attempt to find out, by combining a renewable energy sailboat with an arctic ski expedition in Greenland. The result is an inspiring and formidable voyage, with compromise and progress going hand in hand on an experimental journey through the wild landscapes and seascapes of Western Greenland.

Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour comes to Brighton Dome on 21st February & 11th April 2024. For more information and to book tickets, see www.banff-uk.com
