The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming back, live, to Williams Lake on Wednesday, December 1.

Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world. Hot on the heels of the festival held every fall in beautiful Banff, Alberta, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. With stops planned in roughly 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe, the Banff World Tour celebrates amazing achievements in outdoor storytelling and filmmaking worldwide.

From the over 400 entries submitted into the Festival each year, award-winners and audience favourites are among the films that are carefully selected to play in theatres around the world. Traveling to remote vistas, analyzing topical environmental issues and bringing audiences up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2021/22 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

Join the City of Williams Lake and staff at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex when Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to Williams Lake at the Gibraltar Room on December 1, 2021 beginning at 6:30 pm.

Many thanks to our local sponsors Mt. Timothy Recreation Resort, Caribou Ski Source for Sports, The Goat FM, Cariboo Country Radio, Cycle Logic, Fox Mountain Brewing Co. and Sport Chek, who have donated some phenomenal draw prizes to be awarded during the show’s intermission. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out on these.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 17 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex front desk and are $20 each. Due to COVID-19 health restrictions for capacity inside the Gibraltar Room 200 tickets will be available. Proof of vaccination will be required at the door prior to entry.
