A Celebration of Mountain Culture in the Outdoor Capital of the UK

Best of Banff Night – SUNDAY 23rd February 2014

The Best of Banff Night will showcase some of the most inspiring, creative and exciting films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival.


The Banff Film Festival receives film entries from across the globe, the best of which are selected for the Best of Banff World Tour. We then get to present the top entries and those which we believe illustrate the best of mountain culture.

The Fort William Mountain Festival will select and screen a range of short films which will illustrate the diverse nature of mountain culture and the variety of opportunities available to get involved.

These films will display some of the most spectacular scenery from around the world and will preview the amazing and inspirational achievements of those involved.

This Best of Banff Night showcases some of the most inspiring, creative and exciting films chosen from the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Film Classifications: mainly “General” all film where “Parental Guidance” is recommended are marked*.
