1975年,世界上的首次班夫山地電影節在加拿大艾伯塔省的班夫國家公園舉行。這個由著名的登山家John Amatt和Chic Scott創意并發起的電影節,從此成為了一年一度世界戶外愛好者的盛會。班夫山地電影節每年11月的第一個周末都會如期在加拿大班夫公園舉行,在一周的展映中,戶外愛好者們將跟著名的探險家、戶外紀錄片導演和攝像共同觀看探險、攀登、運動、山地文化以及自然環境等主題電影。在這個盛會中,世界知名的登山家、環保人士、作家、探險家、攝影家、制片人、旅游愛好者、自然愛好者都會發起研討和交流活動,不斷的推進了戶外運動和戶外紀錄片的發展。

In 1975, the very first Banff Mountain Film Festival was organized by two of the most renowned mountianeers John Amatt and Chic Scott in the mountain town of Banff, Alberta, Canada. It has become one of the most popular gathering of the outdoorsy people from all around the world since. For over 40 years, the Banff Mountain Film Festival takes place each fall in Banff, Alberta. It is nine epic days of mountain stories that includes profound journeys, unexpected adventures, and ground-breaking expeditions told by authors, photographers, and filmmakers from around the globe.

Each year since 1976, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road following the Festival in Canada, bringing audience favourites and special tour edits to local screens around the world. What began as humble festival in a small town has morphed into a massive operation spanning 40 countries and reaching more than 500,000 people each year. The film types are also transforming from exclusively adventure documentaries to extreme sports, nature, environment and culture over the years. The world tour in each country has also been regarded as an annual carnival for local outdoorsy people, extreme sports fans, adventurers, photographers, filmmakers and environmentalists.
