 The spirit of the mountain

Today it continues to grow in quality and offers a renewed program with spectacular films and conferences with renowned adventurers. It also provides the opportunity to share experiences and get inspired with  people who live the spirit of adventure  and face the challenges of nature. Banff rewards film quality, promotion of mountain culture and respect for the environment. Snow, earth, air and water. Nothing more dazzling than the best landscapes in the world along with the most incredible sports 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 live unique experiences alongside extreme athletes.

Cyclists in the mountain, climbing a man who was missing one of his legs, are just some of the stories that the public could know. Because what it was about  transmitting life stories that motivate . A 97-year-old  runner  and an 11-year-old boy skiing were other exciting stories. 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  .
