Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival coming to Lennox

Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival coming to Lennox

The world-famous Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Australia throughout May and June 2023, with a screening at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre on Friday 12 May, 7pm to 10pm.

Known as the most prestigious mountain film festival in the world, films are selected out of as many as 400 entries from global filmmakers.

Touring around every state and territory in the country, this year’s epic adventure line up honours the core belief of the film festival to motivate, inspire, and prove that life is what you make it.

Australian festival tour host, Jemima Robinson, remarks on this year’s phenomenal films: “Each year the bar is raised with incredible people going on the most daring, yet inspiring adventures.

“We’ll all be motivated to live life to the fullest as we watch amazing people do the impossible. Whether its gliding down the slopes with the world’s most creative freeskiers, or following a Sherpa family as they clean up Mount Everest during the pandemic, or watching French kayaker Nouria Newman prepare to become the first female to run a 30m waterfall, or cheering on a Brazilian engineer as he hopes to break the record for the world’s highest slackline walk.”

Each film is carefully selected through a lengthy process of voting from 400 films, down to 80 films that screen at the nine-day-long film festival in Banff, Canada.

From this selection, a program of over two hours of thought-provoking films are selected by Mrs Robinson to tour Australia each April, May, and June.

Featuring seven captivating films from adventurers around the globe, the 2023 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the adventure world.
