About the event

Curated and hosted by Roman Baratiak, A&L Associate Director Emeritus

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns for two nights of exhilarating mountain adventures at larger-than-life scale. Featuring the world’s best films on subjects ranging from ice climbing and high-altitude ballooning to mountain culture and the environment, the tour delivers adrenaline-packed thrills alongside profound messages about human potential and the natural world. An entirely different program of films screens each night.

Film Lineup: Wed, Feb 28

Daughter of the Sea  (United States, 2023, 18 min.) In this story about how nature can help us find ourselves, Jaeyoun Kim returns home to Mara Island, South Korea, where generations of women in her family have worked as free-diving “mermaids” who harvest seafood from the ocean floor.

Sea to Sky Trail Series: Progression  (Canada, 2022, 12 min.)  Follow along as two innovative trail runners dig deep on the west peak of Ch'ich'iyúy Elxwíkn, the Twin Sisters (or the Lions), an iconic Sea to Sky trail.
