The Banff Intro!

We know how you all love the Banff World Tour Intro, so here it is below. Note that there are about 40 films on tour and we are only showing 13, so there will be some scenes in this intro that are not representative of our film selection! When the film starts, click on the “Full Screen” button (bottom right) for the best effect.

Silent Auction

In  1993, the 40th  Anniversary  of the  first  ascent of  Mountain  Everest, Irvine  Butterfield  arranged that  two  one gallon  whisky  casks were  taken  up to  Everest  Base Camp,  and  on return  the  casks were  used  to finish  a  fine malt  whisky.  One of  the  casks was  a  premier display  item  at  the 2002  Dundee  Mountain Film  Festival,  the  20th  anniversary year of the Festival.  In  celebration of  this  anniversary, two  70cl  bottles of  the  finished malt  were  prepared, uniquely  labelled,  and presented  to  the Festival.  In  addition, to  add  to the  20th  anniversary celebration,  Doug  Scott, who  was  the main  speaker  at the  event,  signed the  labels  on the  bottles

One  of  these unique  bottles  will be  Silent  Auctioned at  the 36th Festival (2018),  with bids being placed on  the 23rd  and 24th of November.

Films from the Past

Missed some films in 2017? You can watch some of them here. There are also other films which we have not shown that we think you may enjoy.

Programmes Archive

It is fascinating to look back over the old programmes to see how we have progressed from the formats of film, to video, to DVD and now digital. To reminisce over films and speakers from the past. To be amazed and amused at the old advertisements for equipment and shops.
