Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival

Wednesday, Jan 29, 2020 at 7:00pm


The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival is the largest and most prestigious mountain festival in the world. Hot on the heels of the festival held every November in Banff, Canada, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World 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, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2020 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world. The Banff Festival returns to Lebanon for its 20th year. For the first time at LOH, there will be two evenings with different films each night. Sponsored locally by Omer and Bob’s, Dartmouth Outing Club, Leki, and Rab.
