A Santa Barbara institution, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is a perennial A&L fan favorite. Featuring the world’s best films and videos on mountain subjects, the tour awes viewers with thrills and grandeur captured in exotic locations the world over. The show’s wide variety of film subjects – from extreme sports to mountain culture and environment – will amaze audiences. An entirely different program screens each evening.

With eight films on Wednesday and seven films on Thursday, this year’s highlights range from risky, adrenaline-filled adventures trekking across vast snow and ice fields in Antarctica and down Class 5 white-water rapids in New Zealand to the first-ever downhill ski racing competition in Afghanistan to a spunky dog who shreds on the bike trails and an inspiring team of amputee climbers who have a go at El Capitan.
