It takes time, effort, and an unending passion to be an artist in the world today — and in some cases, it takes being a highly-skilled paraglider. Some of the most awe-inspiring adventure films and documentaries premiere at the Banff Centre Mountain Film + Book Festival. The participating storytellers span the globe. This is why Storyblocks is proud to sponsor the 2020 festival and the Best Mountain Sports Film Award. While we’re bummed that we won’t be celebrating this event in the blissful mountains of Canada, we’re thrilled to offer our support and help these stories be seen.

The festival takes place virtually on October 31st – November 8th, 2020, with 75 films to watch and 40 events, including curated film programs, author events, and guest speakers. Attendees can experience tales of remote journeys, ground-breaking expeditions, and remarkable achievements from around the globe.
