Since 1976, all well-known filmmakers, adventurers and alpinists have been meeting in Banff, Canada to watch, discuss and honor films at the multi-day Banff Festival. Now, the best documentations are going on a great world tour, also coming to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands in March 2015.
With the premiere on 20.2. in Munich this year’s tour launches its journey through Germany – with 7 narrative and visually stunning adventure and nature films in the baggage, including the Eco-Documentary DAMNATION who openly denounced the destruction of nature and canyons for profit-making dams or THE RIDGE by and with the bike artist Danny MacAskill, who conquers mountain trails by bike that others do not dare to walk.
