Join IU Outdoor Adventures when the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Bloomington for the 18th year in a row! The film festival will be held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Saturday, March 28th at 7pm and Sunday, March 29th at 5pm.
The Banff Mountain Film Festival, a program of The Banff Centre, is the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world. Following the initial festival at The Banff Centre in Alberta, the tour hits the road with stops planned in about 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe. This year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival. Traveling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, paddling the wildest waters and climbing the highest peaks, bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2019/2020 World Tour is an exhilarating exploration of the mountain world.
From approximately 400 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe. The films for the two Bloomington screenings are different each night, and will be announced in March at www.outdoors.indiana.edu.
Doors open 30 minutes before each showing. The anticipated length of each showing is 2 hours and 30 minutes with a intermission.
