THE Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is celebrating its tenth year of touring by bringing more than 100 adrenaline-packed shows to venues across Dorset.

There will be two different collections of new films from the world’s most intrepid film-makers, starring pioneers and explorers tackling extraordinary expeditions in the most remote and spectacular reaches of the planet, from the breathtaking mountains of Nepal to the desolate outback of Australia and beyond.

“We’re thrilled to have reached ten years of bringing the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour to the UK and Ireland – and what better way to celebrate than with the latest dose of cutting-edge adventure films from the world’s most prestigious mountain festival!” says tour director Nell Teasdale.

“We guarantee that the anniversary atmosphere at the shows will be buzzing – and that audiences will go home inspired to have an adventure of their own as well,” she adds.

Films in the World Tour are selected from hundreds entered into the Banff Mountain Film Festival, which takes place for every November in Canada’s Rocky Mountains.

As well as jaw-dropping action and stunning cinematography, each event features a free prize draw for outdoor goodies from the tour partners.

The UK and Ireland 2019 tour dates are: February 13: Lighthouse Poole; March 6: Christchurch, Regent Centre; March 7: Lighthouse Poole; April 3: Christchurch, Regent Centre; April 9-10: Wimborne Minster, Tivoli Theatre
