BANFF Mountain Film Festival World Tour


Bookings open 1 October 2017

The 11 films, which form part of the world tour, will be shown at Ster-Kinekor cinemas in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria.

Attention all outdoor enthusiasts and adventure addicts: Be sure to book your seats for the eagerly anticipated annual Banff International Mountain Film Festival, taking place between 3 and 12 November 2017. Tickets will be on sale as of 1 October 2017 from the Ster-Kinekor website. For the twelfth year running, Ster-Kinekor in partnership with South Africa’s favourite outdoor adventure store, Cape Union Mart, will screen the festival to the South African adventure fanatics.

Featuring the best mountain films and exceptional filmmaking talent from around the globe, the festival offers something for everyone with a mix of topics and cinematic styles that will both inspire and entertain. Once again, audiences will get the chance to explore and experience some of the world’s most epic adventure locations – from Iceland’s frosty surf spots and Utah’s canyon country, to Siberia’s snowy slopes and the plains of Patagonia – all from the comfort (and safety) of our world-class cinemas.

All types of outdoor adventure such as surfing and skiing, base-jumping and bouldering, rowing and trail running, are beautifully captured in the films. They also range in duration from the heart-warming and humorous 9-minute Ace and the Desert Dog and 5-minute art piece that is Metronomic, to the 27-minute inspirational documentary Young guns, which will keep audiences of all ages motivated to gear up and get out.

What’s more, attendees will get to see this year’s winning submission from the annual Cape Union Mart Adventure Film Challenge – One Fly at a Time by Dewald Brand. The competition gets local filmmakers, adventurers and athletes to capture and celebrate South Africa’s outdoors culture as well as the spirit of adventure.
