Banff Mountain Films in Tacoma

Join PSO for the Banff Film Festival World Tour

For the last 12 years PSO has co-sponsored the Banff Film Festival World Tour in Tacoma.  The festival started on campus and has grown to two nights at the Rialto Theater in downtown Tacoma.  We choose the films in collaboration with Edgeworks, the Mountaineers Tacoma and with help from the Banff roady.

Banff films offer perspectives on mountain and mountain culture.
