Banff 2024

Shenandoah National Park Trust is proud to host the 2024 Banff Mountain Film Festival, live with never-before-seen films on both nights, March 2nd & 3rd* at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville.

Banff Adventurers

Banff Adventurers get early access to the theater, an invitation to the kickoff party, and a chance to hike and/or attend events with us throughout the year! Adventurer tickets include a donation to support conservation, education, and more in Shenandoah National Park. 


With more than 2,000 attendees from 100+ zip codes, Banff is one of the best opportunities to link your brand with adventure in Virginia and support Shenandoah National Park. The Banff Film Festival is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we’re hoping to raise over $100,000 at the event this year. Help us reach our goal by becoming a sponsor today!

General Admission tickets will be available through the Paramount Theater on January 12th.

For the last 8 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 2024!

*Note: Due to the popularity of Banff, the Paramount Theater has agreed to move the festival to Saturday and Sunday (rather than our usual Sunday and Monday)! Please plan accordingly.
