Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour -Tacoma Screening 2013

Join us in T-Town for TWO nights with different films each night!

December 2-3, 2013

What will two nights look like this year?

We are excited to bring you two nights of films this year.  Each night will be different so that we can show a broader range of films.  Each night will include short, medium and a feature length films (45min - 70min).  The show schedule will be decided with the Banff Roadie the day of the shows based on the previous shows and what Tacoma audiences have enjoyed in the past.

Why we bring the world tour Tacoma?

We are excited to bring the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to Tacoma for the eighth year.  The films each year go deeper into the story of the adventure and into what the adventures are going through.  The films go way beyond the average adrenalin film.  Join us!

The event is co-Sponsored by The Mountaineers Tacoma branch and the University of Puget Sound Outdoors program. We sponsor this event to bring outdoor enthusiasts to gather, expand community and our horizons.

Choosing the film line up:

Each tour location is givne the opportunity to choose which films they think would be appreciated by the audience in their location.  The films are chosen from available films.  The films that go on tour include the best of films and films that they Banff Center can garner the rights to show by the time the tour reaches each location.  We choose the films with the advice of the Banff Tour Roadie.  The films are not chosen until the afternoon of the show because we do nto have enough information prior to this time to make educated choices without the help of the Banff Roadie.

An image from the film choice and line up process last year at Tullies Coffee the day of the first show.
