Banff 2023

Shenandoah National Park Trust is proud to host the 2023 Banff Mountain Film Festival, live with never-before-seen films on both nights, March 5th & 6th at The Paramount.

The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour highlights the best short films that capture inspiring moments and thought provoking action in mountain sports and culture from around the world.

For the last 7 years, Shenandoah National Park Trust has had the honor of bringing the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival to the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. We are excited to announce that the two-night festival complete with raffles and giveaway prizes will be back at the Paramount in March 2023!
