The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is back in Ireland for 2017, bringing an unforgettable evening of adventure films to Ennis for the first time.
At Glór Theatre on Saturday 13 May, this collection of short films combines high-adrenaline action sports with inspirational stories from sometimes unlikely adventurers.
“The Banff Tour is more than a series of exhilarating film nights. Each screening offers a real sense of community, bringing together people with a wide range of outdoor passions. And we guarantee that viewers will leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures too,” says tour director Nell Teasedale.
“Our Ireland shows are always incredibly popular, so we wanted to add a new Irish venue to the 2017 tour and County Clare seemed a great choice,” he added.

The short films, starring the world’s top adventurers on exciting journeys in mind-blowing destinations, are selected from hundreds of films entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival held every year in the Canadian Rockies.
This year’s UK and Ireland tour includes 14 hugely diverse films, featuring everything from tales of high-adrenaline action to poignant environmental documentaries. There’s also a significant focus on women in adventure; and the collection stars a number of UK adventurers, as well as athletes and escapades from all over the globe.
The films are split between two different programmes, each lasting about 2½ hours, with free prize giveaways at each screening. The tour is part of the wider Banff World Tour, which travels the globe each year, visiting nearly 50 countries and reaching more than 400,000 people worldwide.
