The Banff Mountain Film Competition is now heading into its 37th year. The popular competition has helped expose film enthusiasts to the mountains and the culture that surrounds them.
Over the past three decades, the competition has developed a world-class reputation and an audience that spans the globe. The festival kicks off on October 27 and continues through November 4, 2012. The gathering is a fantastic opportunity for young up and coming filmmakers to network and inspire one another. There is a special Adventure Filmmakers’ Workshop for attendees to participate in.
Filmmakers who enter the competition have a shot at winning the Audio Post Production Scholarship or Award for Creative Excellence – each of which comes with $10,000 in services at The Banff Centre. In all, there is over $40,000 in cash and services prizes to be awarded. Films that are selected for the World Tour or Radical Reels Tour could potentially reach over 280,000 people.
The deadline for entries is August 7th, 2012, plenty of time to start production on your masterpiece!
