Be inspired, be energized, and celebrate the spirit of adventure when the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Tacoma with all new films for 2018/19!

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition and an annual presentation of short films and documentaries about mountain culture, sports, and environment. It was launched in 1976 as The Banff Festival of Mountain Films by The Banff Centre and is held every fall in Banff, Alberta.

Immediately after the annual festival wraps each November, a selection of the best films go on tour. The host organization(s) in each tour location chooses a program that reflects the interests of their community. Each community creates a unique celebration of local adventure and adventurers. The World Tour visits approximately 305 cities annually in 20 countries, reaching over 220,000 audience members. Tacoma is one of the very first stops of the tour!

Film selection occurs the afternoon of the events, and we will do our best to identify a range of activities to suit our varied local community.

NOTE: The film rating is Parental Guidance, and films may contain coarse language.

Show times and seating:

Doors open at 6:00 pm  |  Shows start at 6:45 pm  |  Seats are festival style ~ first come basis

Invite your friends, wear your best GLOW, and join us for an after-hours, kid-friendly, member event. As a way to say thank you to our members, we’ll turn out the lights one more time before the work begins Monday morning to return things to “normal” around here.

*Some competition routes will come down prior to the member event and the climbing area will be open to the outside side lights from the front desk and 2nd floor. To experience the full effect of the black lights, be sure to join us for the 2018 BLB Comp on Saturday, Oct 27!

Roped Climbing on the shorter walls will be closed during the event but the new/taller walls will be business as usual with normal lights and access.

FREE! for members! Regular day pass rates apply for guests of members.

Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey

Doors open at 6:15 pm  |  Show starts at 7:00 pm  |  General admission seating – first come basis

Fred Beckey was the original American “Dirtbag” climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey’s stubborn, singular quest to conquer peaks meant a solitary life on the road, where he left a long trail of scorned climbing partners and lost lovers in his wake.

The groundbreaking life story of this rebel athlete, who inspired generations of climbers to head for the mountains with his monumental first ascents and eloquent books, is told for the first time in this exclusive documentary film.
