The spirit of the mountain
Originally from the town of Banff, Canada, the festival reached and arrived in Argentina in 2001. Today continues to grow in quality and offers a renewed programme with spectacular films and conferences with recognized adventurers. In addition, it provides the opportunity to share experiences and be inspired by people who live the spirit of adventure and face the challenges of nature. Banff rewards quality , the promotion of mountain culture and respect for environment. Snow, earth, air and water. Nothing more dazzling than the best landscapes in the world along with the most incredible sporting feats.
Life stories that motivate
The festival featured short films and documentary films from Germany, Belgium, Canada, Spain and United States. Through the big screen , viewers were able to experience unique experiences with extreme athletes .
Cyclists in the mountains, the climbing of a man who lacked one of his legs, are just some of the stories that the public was able to know. Because what it was all about was transmitting life stories that motivate. A 97-year-old runner and an 11-year-old boy skiing were another exciting story. At Banff, nature is felt and breathed in every challenge, every adventure. They say it spreads the spirit of the mountain, they say it has a different energy .
