Banff Mountain Film Festival

Banff Mountain Film Festival Lebanon

For the second year, under the Patronage of the Embassy of Canada to Lebanon, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is coming to Lebanon and will showcase the best film productions in climbing, snowboarding, cycling, skiing, kayaking and mountaineering selected from last year’s festival.

Whether you want to discover new mountain activities or share your passion with like-minded aficionados, don’t miss this unique opportunity to catch more than 20 movies for a duration of five hours over two consecutive nights!

Join us to witness the finest outdoor adventure films on big screen.

Come celebrate the great diversity of the mountains with the ever growing community of Lebanese outdoor enthusiasts and professionals.

This year, the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Beirut is organized in honor and memory of John Redwine.
John left us last December in a mountain accident while climbing a gulley on the southern face of Mount Sannine.
John was a great climber who devoted a lot of his time to develop climbing in Lebanon, in particular at the Nahr Beirut climbing crag in Dayshounieh. He was also one of the main organizers of the first edition of the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Beirut.

Furthermore, you can get the chance to participate in the “PolyLiban Photo Exhibition” which aims to promote the Lebanese natural heritage through outdoor sports while raising awareness about the importance of preserving the natural environment.
