We have been evaluating our Banff Mountain Film Festival tour locations In the USA with Banff Centre over the last few weeks. Considering all the risks and our goal to be a good partners to communities we host our shows in we have decided to cancel our Spring shows in Chattanooga, Cleveland and Chicago.    Banff Centre concurs and is also cancelling all USA shows this Spring.

We will work to reschedule the 2020 Banff shows in these cities and will keep you informed on the progress. We also already are working on our 2021 dates and will let you know when those are confirmed with our theaters and the Banff Centre. This is a new and in flux situation and we are making the best decisions we can considering all involved.

Ticket refunds.

We will refund all tickets purchased for the spring shows. There is no action you need to take on this at this time to get your refund we will request full refunds for all ticket purchasers and you should expect the refund within 10 days. Please bear with us while we arrange all this and do not worry or contact us until after 3/24 if you have any questions. Our intent is to get everyone there refunds as soon as possible.

If you purchased tickets to the Chattanooga the refund will be coming from the Walker theater Box office.

Chicago and Cleveland refunds will be through our ticket agency Brown Paper tickets.

Stay Healthy, Play outdoors, Take care of your friends and community and we’ll look forward to seeing you when the situation is resolved.
