The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour has been providing outdoorsy folk from around the world with mountain culture for over 40 years. The films shown as part of the traveling world tour are inspiring, adventurous, and thought-provoking, created for like-minded audiences in cities, mountain towns (like Roanoke), and villages in over 40 countries.
Gates open at 6:30pm and films will begin at 7pmish. There will be food, beer and vendors in Elmwood throughout the weekend, this includes during the films.
This year BANFF will be a part of the annual Anthem Go Outside Festival thanks to Mast General Store, kicking off the entertainment in Elmwood Park on the Haley Toyota Stage. GO Fest will be asking for donations at the door for the Friday showing, but no ticket price is required.
All proceeds from both events will go to benefit Project Outside, a community fund created to support outdoor capital improvement projects, maintain key outdoor assets, and help launch and support businesses in the outdoor sector.
Last year GO Fest, through sponsors and concert ticket sales, was able to award fourteen Project Outside grants totaling $100,000 that supported trail development, greenway maintenance, ProjectPark to improve the Villa Heights Rec Center, provided much-need equipment to trail organizations, support local outdoor businesses impacted by COVID, frisbee golf courses, and support a start-up businesses catering to mountain bike tourism.
