ELLSWORTH — The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, featuring the best mountain films this year, returns to The Grand in late January. The tour showcases filmmaking talent from around the world for an audience that spans the globe.

“As we do every year, we bring an exciting program to the screen, allowing everyone to experience these inspiring stories that drive us to keep exploring our world outside,” said Joseph Moran, marketing manager for Cadillac Mountain Sports, the event sponsor.

The 2015/2016 World Tour features a collection of exhilarating and provocative films that explore life in the mountains. They highlight remote cultures, intense expeditions into exotic landscapes and bring adrenaline-packed action sports into sharp focus.

“The best part of hosting the World Tour is being able to witness a community of film buffs and lovers of the outdoors come together to share stories, be inspired to set out on new adventures and learn about the mountains they love,” said Moran. “You will always connect with old friends and make new ones at the World Tour screenings. That’s the best part!”

The most prestigious mountain festival in the world, The Banff Centre’s Banff Mountain Film Festival celebrates its 40th year in 2015 by continuing to bring the best action, environmental and adventure films to audiences in Banff and in 40 countries across the globe.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour brings the spirit of outdoor adventure to The Grand on Jan 29 and 30 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 31 at 2 p.m.
