Check out the trailer for Banff Film Festival’s Untold Stories

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is back for another year, bringing adventurous-minded souls the most exciting and inspirational outdoors films from around the globe. However, things are a little different this year…

For 2021, the festival has gone part-virtual, and is kicking off proceedings this week with the live online premiere of the Untold Stories programme from 16 April to 19 April.

Shining a light on cultural expeditions and inspirational characters, from the London-based pianist who took his piano to the Indian Himalayas to the high-rope walking women making leaps of faith together, these films look like the perfect way of reigniting that adventurous flame after a long winter at home.

Check out the trailer for the event below, or head here to book your tickets.
