The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition featuring the most inspiring and thought-provoking action, environmental, and adventure mountain films. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2009/2010 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

Each year, the festival receives approximately 330 films in the film festival competition. The films come from more than 45 countries and range from productions created by high school students to professional crews working with companies like the BBC and National Geographic. An international film festival jury chooses the best films from these finalists and awards prizes in eight categories: Grand Prize, Climbing, Mountain Sports, Mountain Environment, Mountain Culture, Short Mountain Film (under 15 minutes), and Feature-Length Mountain Film (documentary or fiction). Audience members select the winner of the People's Choice Award.

Immediately after the festival in November, a selection of the best films entered in the festival goes on tour. The festival showing at Princeton University is sponsored by the Outdoor Action Program and Blue Ridge Mountain Sports.

Films will be selected from among the complete film list for the 2009/10 World Tour. Not all films will be shown. Following are highlights from a few:

Africa Revolutions Tour

USA, 2009, 20 minutes
Directed by Rush Sturges
Produced by Tyler Bradt

View video

From the crocodile-infested White Nile in Uganda to big-water first descents in Madagascar, a group of friends seek adventure on African rivers. Accompanying the team is Rita Riewerts, the founder of the Sun Catchers Project, a non-profit that installs solar cooking facilities in orphanages, hospitals and communities.

First Ascent: Alone on the Wall

USA, 2009, 24 minutes
Directed and produced by Peter Mortimer and Nick Rosen

After gaining international climbing renown for his landmark free-solo of Moonlight Buttress (V, 5 .12+, 9 pitches) in Zion National Park, Utah, in April 2008, 24-year-old Alex Honnold moves on to his next big challenge: the first free-solo of the Regular Northwest Face (VI, 5 .12a, 23 pitches) on Yosemite’s Half Dome.

Kranked — Revolve
[special edit for Banff Tour]

People’s Choice Award for Radical Reels, sponsored by Mountain Culture
at The Banff Centre
Canada, 2009, 11 minutes
Directed and produced by Bjørn Enga

View video

The coolest human-powered adrenaline tool ever invented — the mountain bike? Revolve blasts in cinematic glory from the French Alps to the lush coast of B.C., incorporating dirt jump, trail, freeride, slopestyle and downhill.

France, 2008, 6 minutes
Directed and produced by Guillaume Broust

Filmed in the Mont Blanc range, this short features six different mountain sports: climbing, skiing, snowboarding, speed riding, paragliding and BASE jumping. A photographer wants to take one shot showing all the sports, instead of taking separate photos of each sport. It takes a lot of work!

The Ultimate Skiing Showdown

Canada, 2009, 4 minutes
Directed and produced by David McMahon

The final sprint showdown between the fastest skiers on Earth in juxtaposition with a stunt performer showing some of the sickest moves on Nordic skis. A lot of fun!
