In need of a bit of adventure? Shake off the winter blues with these stunning images from this year’s Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Then scroll down and enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to the screening on 1st April!

Every year, short films of jaw-dropping beauty and intensity documenting astonishing tales of outdoor adventure, everyday heroes and acts of daring-do are entered into the Mountain Film Festival held in Banff, Canada. Following the festival, the year’s best films make a grand world tour, stopping for screenings in over 40 countries, including the UK and Ireland.

We are lucky enough to have two screenings in Kent – one in Canterbury (so popular it is already sold out) and another in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday 1st April. There will be seven films being screened that night (the ‘Red Programme’).

Here’s a photo preview of the astonishing stories that will be told on the night:
