Banff Mountain Film Festival

Overview

Every year for the past 13 years, the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) has brought to Breckenridge a collection of some of the most inspiring and thought-provoking action, environmental and adventure mountain films with the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. This exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world features film footage from the highest peaks and other far-flung corners of the world, as well as adrenaline-packed action sports.

The 2023 Live Banff Mountain Film Festival is scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday, February 24 and 25, 2023 at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. Doors open at 6pm with films set to begin at 7pm.

You can also watch two other distinct lineups of films from the comfort of your own home with the Virtual Banff Film Festival from November 25, 2021 through October 23, 2022.

All proceeds support BOEC’s programs for adaptive recreation and outdoor education. For more information or questions about this event, please contact the BOEC at [email protected].

Sponsor Testimonials

Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains

“Dear BOEC, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all that you do. You mean a lot to the community as well as visitors, and what you do for people in need is very special. I attended the Banff Film Festival with my company, both last year and this year, and wanted to say thank you for putting on such a nice evening. It is an important night and was wonderful as always. Keep up the good work and I look forward to next year’s show!”

“We have been working with the BOEC for quite some time now in different ways and I’ve always thought you guys run a great program and did so much for athletes. We’re always happy to help.”
