Applications for the Adventure Filmmaker Workshop that takes place during the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival are due soon! Apply by August 21st for this incredible experience, sponsored by The Camera Store. 

The program is designed for filmmakers who want to take their work to the next level in everything from pre-production all the way through to distribution. The workshop runs for ten days over the course of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Fest, from October 26th to November 4th, 2019. Participants will have the opportunity to hone their craft and strengthen their skills under an incredible faculty: Keith Partridge, cinematographer on Touching the Void and author of The Adventure Game; and Michael Brown, director of last year’s Grand Prize film at the festival, The Weight of Water. The workshop is also a great opportunity to network with filmmakers from the world over, as well as industry insiders and decision makers.
