Tickets go on sale today for the Banff Centre Mountain Film & Book Festival! The Camera Store is proud to be a sponsor of the festival, which runs for #nineepicdays from October 26th to November 3rd, 2019, in beautiful Banff.This year, the festival welcomes extraordinary adventurers and legends such as Andrzej Bargiel, Sasha DiGiulian and Sarah Marquis for on-stage presentations, plus over 75 films, award-winning authors, and many free events and exhibitions. 

This will be the 44th year of the Banff Centre Mountain Film & Book Festival, which celebrates film, books, and photography dedicated to the theme of adventure. Hosted by the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and set in the heart of Banff in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, there’s no place better to immerse yourself in mountain culture and celebration. 

The Camera Store proudly sponsors the festival and the Mountain Photo Essay Competition, which went to documentary photographer Javier Corso this year for his project Matagi. The essay explores the culture and challenges facing the group of traditional Japanese hunters that live and hunt in the highlands of northern Honshu, Japan’s main island. The essay will be on display in one of the many free exhibitions at the Festival as well.
